Parents as partners

At Little Footprints, we recognise the importance of working in a true partnership with our parents. We recognise that you provide your child’s primary care and education, and that you know your child best.  We endeavour to build the very best relationships with the parents and carers of all the children who attend the nursery. We believe in an open-door policy and we will always welcome parents’ comments and observations so that we can work together to provide the right balance for your child.

Parents are always consulted on issues that affect the welfare, well-being, learning and development of their children. We ensure that your child’s key person shares information about their care and development on a regular basis and staff are always available to share information about your children on a daily basis either when dropping your child off or collecting them. In addition, you are always welcome to speak to members of senior management.

Throughout your child’s time at nursery we will observe and monitor your child’s progress, and record this in their ‘Learning Journey’.  You will be welcome to view this at any time through our on-line portal, although you may prefer to attend one of our parent evenings held throughout the year.

We will also keep you updated with regular newsletters detailing events within the nursery and questionnaires enabling us to evaluate the services we provide for you and your child at Little Footprints. We will explore with you the best way to keep you in touch and updated with your child’s progress.
