Parent Partnership


We believe that children benefit most from early year’s education and care when parents and settings work together in partnership


Our aim is to support parents as their children’s first and most important educators by involving them in their children’s education and in the full life of the setting. We also aim to support parents in own continuing education and personal development


  •  We have a means to ensure all parents are included-that may mean we have different strategies for involving fathers or who work or live apart from their children
  • We consult with all parents to find out what works best for them
  • We ensure ongoing dialogue with parents to improve our knowledge of the needs of your children and to support their families
  • We inform all parent about how the setting is run and its polices, through access to written information and through regular informal communication. We check to ensure parents understand and sign that they have read and understood the information that has been given to them
  • We encourage and support parents to play an active part in the governance and management of the setting
  • We inform all parents on a regular basis about their children’s progress
  • We involve parents in the shared records keeping about their children- either formally or informally and ensure parent have access to their children’s written developmental records
  • We provide opportunities for parents to contribute their own skills, knowledge and interests to the activities of the settings
  • We inform parents about relevant conferences, workshops and training through newsletters/email etc.
  • We consult with parents about the times of meeting to avoid excluding anyone
  • We inform all parents of the systems for registering queries, complaints or suggestions and we check to ensure these are understood. All parents have access to our written complaints procedure
  • We provide opportunities for parents to learn about the curriculum offered in the setting and about young children’s learning, in our setting and at home
