Family Engagement

We aim to always work in partnership with families. Accessing and engaging with the online learning journal see saw enable families to receive notifications, photos, videos, and updates regularly. Parents/Carers are also welcomed to discuss their child’s day with the child’s key worker and other staff members who work within the playroom. Throughout the year parents/carers are invited to attend parents’ evenings and curriculum information evenings. The Head of Centre, Depute Head of Centre and Child Development Team Leader will also be available to offer support, advice, and information at any time.

The Keyworker System

The keyworker is responsible for an allocated group of children. The keyworker and all staff aim to build positive relationships with both the children and families. The keyworker is responsible for providing age and stage appropriate learning experiences for each child in their key group as part of the curriculum. The keyworker also tracks, assesses, identifies next steps in their learning journey and celebrates children’s achievements. All staff within the playroom provide high quality care and a rich learning environment for all children.
