Key Person

Each child is assigned a key person within the nursery who will build relationships with you and help your child become familiar and feel safe and secure within the nursery.

Learning Journals

Each child will have an electronic learning journal which you and your child’s key person will have regular access to. This will record your child’s progress, achievements and next steps. Your key person will help ensure that your child’s care is tailored to meet their individual needs and interests.

Parent’s contributions to these learning journals are crucial in supporting your child’s learning and development, we encourage parents to share their child’s achievements, interests and next steps at home with their key person and nursery. This can be done securely using your mobile or tablet with the use of a password once you have activated your account.
