Parents/carers views and contributions to the nursery are really important to us.
We have established a Parent Forum since 2014 who meet every 6-8 weeks, everyone is welcome. You do not have to attend every meeting. We discuss the nursery and our involvement in your children’s development and learning and sometimes there is cake too!
We have a display in the nursery corridor with notes from the most recent meeting, along with the date of the next meeting.
Following suggestions made by parents when asked how the forum could be made more accessible to parents, we have bought the time of the meetings forward, offer a Creche facility and share agenda’s prior to meeting taking place. At a forum in Sept 16, we had a guest speaker from the Children Centre who came along and talked about early language development. At our most recent (March 17) we had Sarah from the children centre who talked to us about the Solihul parenting approach and behaviour management.
Annual Parent Survey
Each year we send out a parent survey. Parents/carers are encouraged to share their feedback on topics relevant to the nursery and provide suggestions for improvement. Since our last survey, we are working on Sharing Learning at home. We are in the process of introducing Learning Snap shots within the rooms then sharing this along with suggestions on how parents/carers can build and extend learning at home.
