Nursery provision – Partnership with Parents

image (17)Partnership with Parents

We believe that parents are the child’s most influential teacher.  Therefore in our setting the partnership with you as parte/carer is vitally important. You have an important role in supporting your child to develop an interest in reading and singing which will support your child’s to develop their communication, language and literacy skills. In the Nursery we have a library system where children are encouraged to select stories to take home to share with their parents/carers. Parents are given information about the importance and the benefits of book sharing. We will regularly distribute leaflets to all our parents/ carers which will give examples of how parents can easily discover the pleasure of book sharing.



We believe that by working in partnership with parents/carers to develop children's love of reading in early years, together we will support children’s future development in all areas of their future learning.

Both my children have attended the nursery and loved it. My first was very shy and they were wonderful. My 2nd was terrible at potty training & they nurtured him through it”. Julie Fox
