Parent Partnership


We consider that the relationship with our parents and other carers to be central to the success of the pre-school.


  • We hold twice yearly formal key worker/parent meetings to review children’s progress
  • Weekly emails are sent from the Pre-school Leader to parents about forthcoming learning and how they can contribute
  • Family fix it days bring us together to help maintain the garden
  • Parent feedback forms are available, welcoming general comments
  • Parents are warmly encouraged to contribute to their child’s online learning journeys, sharing news and photos and videos from home
  • We send out an annual opinion survey. All comments are read, we take action to improve in any areas that are highlighted and respond to suggestions for improvement
  • Families are warmly encouraged to join in with ‘parent help’, where mums, dads, grandparents are invited to come along and take part in a pre-school session


We consider parents as one of our most important stakeholders and will continue to make parent partnership one of our highest priorities.
