Partnership with parents
Springwood nursery sees its partnership with parents to be very important. When we refer to ‘parents’ we mean both mothers and fathers; these include both natural or birth parents as well as step parents and parents who do not live with their children, but have contact with them and play a part in their lives.
We actively encourage and welcome parents who wish to come into the nursery to help or do a talk or demonstration of their skills. An open invitation is displayed on the parents notice board. We welcome parents along to all our trips and outings. For those parents/ families where English is an additional language, staff would tell them about these opportunities verbally to ensure they are included with every other parent/carer.
Parents can be reassured that their child is going to be well cared for and encouraged to develop and learn in an environment which values and needs their contribution on a day to day basis. They will be kept informed about their child's development and general process. Good, clear communication means that the needs of the child and his/ her family can be met more easily
