How do the parents get involved?

We actively encourage all parents to get involved with the Pre-school. This can be very rewarding. Any help, encouragement and support are greatly appreciated and the children reap the rewards.

Usually most Pre-schools and playgroups have a rota each half term where the parents are asked to stay and help for one session, we don’t insist parents come in (as some parents do work) however we welcome any parents who offer to help. The children are delighted when their parent's stay and it gives them a feeling of security. It also gives you the opportunity to see what your child does when s/he is away from home and what they are learning through play.Staff meet with parents 3 times a year to discuss their child’s development, however parents can request a review meeting at any time to discuss any queries they may have directly with the child’s key carer.
