“The child supplies the power but the parents do the steering”

Partnership with parents

We believe parental involvement is vital to your child’s education, learning and development. A close relationship with parents is important to help achieve a happy and relaxed environment. That is why at St George’s we welcome parents’ input from day one. We encourage you to stay at some of the pre-visits, as this will help your child to settle into nursery life. We also encourage home visits for your child – this provides us with valuable information ready for your child’s journey at St George’s. We also welcome you to attend stay and play sessions where you can experience all the fun that your child experiences on a daily basis.

A positive partnership can only be achieved through regular contact and we take every opportunity to achieve this. Both the key person and the Manager are available daily; and to keep you informed, we publish regular newsletters, use social media, parental surveys and parents’ evenings. We also encourage parents to contribute by discussing any developments at home with the key person as this has a positive influence on your child’s development.

At St George’s each child will have an individual learning journey, which you as parents can access via the First Steps Parent Link App. The staff team will record and monitor your child’s development and progress in each of the areas. We hope that during your time with us you will also contribute to your child’s learning journey.
