Partnership with Parents & Outside Agencies

Partnership with Parents

At Robin Hill Nursery we feel that the relationship between ourselves and parents/carers should be one of trust and mutual support. We value all parents and carers equally and hope to encourage a two way flow of communication. We believe the sharing of knowledge is the start of an important relationship between parents and practitioners and provides an essential link between the home and nursery environment.

At Robin Hill, this partnership is built from the very minute you register your child with us. We offer a minimum of two settling in sessions and a home visit before your child is due to start. During the settling in sessions, your child will be able to meet the staff, get to know the environment and form those crucial new relationships. This is also an opportunity for you to discuss your child's starting points, learn about the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and to fully understand what we do here at Robin Hill and how we will support and prepare your child for School. Two members of staff will also visit you and your child in your home. They will bring with them a goody bag of toys, books and puzzles from the nursery. This is a perfect way for us to get to know your family and for you to be involved as much as possible in your child's learning and development.

Throughout your time with us, we have many different ways for you to get involved in what we do. We have 'Wow slips' for the Caterpillars, 'Little stars' for the Butterflies, Home learning sacks, a Toy Library, Parent helpers and much more...

On top of all of that, each year, we hold one formal Parents Evening, a Summer BBQ, a leavers party (for the school leavers only), a Christmas craft evening and a Christmas show.

Partnership with outside professionals/agencies

Each year, we arrange visits from the Fire Brigade, Police, Vets and Dentists.

Each month, the children are visited by Diddi Dance and Little Kickers! 

 

Occasionally, there may be the need for us to work with outside professionals or agencies, such as the Children's Integrated Therapy Service, to ensure a child's individual needs are being met. In these situations, we may be required to share information if it is in the child's best interests. This will be carried out with the consent and involvement of parents. Our Special Education Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) will work with the whole family throughout this time, offering support where needed.
