Communication with parents:

Staff and management are available to talk to parents at any time. We operate an open door policy, therefore parents are welcome at any time of the day. Each child’s routine is recorded in detail for parents in their individual daily record book. Their daily activities are recorded on our events board outside each room. Text messages are sent to all parents to assist with news being relayed home

Each child is assigned a key worker who will conduct their observations and record any milestones that your child may reach whilst in the centre. Observartions are conducted on a tri-annual basis by each child’s key worker. This is done by conducting a 10 minute running record which records everything the child is doing from their precise movements to what they say and do. This is then evaluated using developmental charts. The advantage of observations is to ensure that the daily activities are suited to the child and are within their personal capacity. It also allows staff to monitor activities within the centre and whether or not they need to be changed, or the suitability of these activities.
