Partnership with Parents

We recognise that parents are their children’s first and most enduring educators and carers.

Our aim is to work in close partnership with parents to complement their approach to childcare, particularly to assist children when learning new skills such as toilet training, reading and writing. The closer the parent and nursery team work in partnership, the more rewarding the child’s time in nursery will be.

Dovecote Nursery strives to be the leader in high quality, progressive childcare. We will provide a warm, friendly, happy environment where each child is encouraged to reach their full potential through praise, sensitivity and mutual respect.

The nursery door is always open to all parents and carers for informal drop-ins. Parents will also be invited to regular parent’s meetings to discuss a child’s progress. At the end of each day, parents will receive a ‘Daily Diary’ containing a brief summary of what the child has eaten, how long they slept for and other relevant information. They will also capture any key moments of the child’s day to share with the family.

A detailed profile report will be provided at the end of each term.
