As you are your child's first educator and we are their second, it is important that we work together to maximise your child's learning and development. Our parent helper rota system allows all parents to be involved in helping in the pre-school on a regular basis. This helps to maintain the high ratio of adults to children. It also gives parents the opportunity to take an active part in the pre-school, to see what happens there and to talk about it afterwards with their child.

Ways in which we involve parents in the setting:

  • By regular newsletters and information provided on our noticeboard
  • By displaying photos and samples of the children's work/activities
  • By staying to play and help on the parent rota system
  • By contributing to the Learning Journey Diary
  • By attending Pre-school trips
  • By helping to organise and/or attend fundraising and social events
  • By joining the committee
  • By attending open evenings/days

Studies regularly show that children whose parents are interested and involved in their education are happier and more successful. If you would be interested in helping on a regular basis or just joining us for one session to see what we do please speak to either Janet or Barbara who will be happy to help.
