Communication with Parents
At Children’s Corner we appreciate the difficulty of leaving your child whilst you go to work. We aim to provide shared care whether your child attends only one day or full time. We feel very privileged to spend time with your child and we cherish every day with them.
We want to share information with you on your child’s time in nursery, so we record key details as below.
Parents of children under the age of two:
A report is sent to your nominated email address at the end of the nursery day. This details what your child has eaten; the frequency and length of their sleeps; toileting and the activities and play your child has been involved in. Any achievements are also noted. A member of staff may also discuss this with you upon collection of your child.
Parents of children over the age of two:
When you collect your child we will give you a verbal review of your child’s day including food eaten, sleeps and toileting plus any additional key information.
Settling In Report
Completed with parents on each child’s first day at nursery.
On completing of your child’s first 6 weeks at nursery you can expect to receive a settling in report. This is a very brief report that highlights how the child has settled and the bonds they have begun to make.
An electronic individual Learning Journey is kept for each child during their time at nursery. It can be accessed via a mobile phone, tablet or computer.
This is a shared document between yourselves and the nursery and built around observations and photographs of your child’s development. We take lots of photos so it is a lovely record of your child growing up and experiencing new things at nursery. All entries are dated to show progression and development through their time with us.
We encourage parents to contribute to these shared records themselves – it is lovely to see what your child is up to outside of nursery. We hope that parents will find this a memorable keepsake of their child’s time with us. Access is via a password unique to each child but as it is online it is available for you to share with grandparents and friends should you wish to do so.
This is also an excellent resource for your child’s reception class teacher to assess his/her progress at school entry.
