Partnerships with Parents/Carers

We at Arborescence appreciate that a child’s first educator is their parents therefore we aim to work in partnership with them in all aspects of their child’s care and education.

•    Settling in visits are recommended. This aids the transition from the home environment to nursery. This being the first opportunity to share the knowledge of their child with the future key person.
•    Each child at Arborescence is assigned a key person who is responsible for completing their developmental records and day to day care.
•    Nursery Policies and Procedures are accessible to parents as they are located in the entrance. On the notice board we display notices of information that we feel may be useful to all parents.
•    Verbal feedback and written feedback for all the children occurs between the staff and parents daily at the beginning and end of the session.
•    We encourage parents to participate in any nursery outings that take place.
