Parent participation policy

St Luke’s recognises that parents have an important part to play in the delivery of quality child care to young children. We believe that parental involvement contributes enormously to the effective way in which we operate. Parents are welcome to come to the setting at any time to spend time with their child and assist with activities, hence becoming involved in the overall support network we provide for children and their families.

Parents are encouraged to become involved in the nursery in each or one of the following ways:

  • Being active in the establishment of a Parent-Nursery relationship.
  • Talking to staff about their child, their interests and their learning.
  • Asking questions about the daily activities and working towards the Early Years Foundation Stage.
  • Suggesting things that they would like staff to consider when planning activities at the nursery.
  • Asking to view their child’s developmental record which is compiled and regularly updated by the staff.
  • Maintaining an interest in the running of the nursery, reading all notices and email newsletters, attending meetings, responding to surveys etc.
  • Contributing to the running of the nursery by sharing special skills in music, languages, drama or other activities.
  • Participating in the Committee meetings.
  • Attending formal and informal functions arranged by the nursery.
  • Contributing to the Policies and Procedures review process when asked via the events page of the website or the email newsletter or notices on the parents’ notice board.
  • Supporting our nursery through fundraising and donations.
  • When possible being involved in our excursions.

This policy is to be reviewed annually.
