Training is ongoing throughout the nursery to refresh and deepen practitioners knowledge and experience.
You will also see students from time to time who maybe on work experience or from colleges/ university who are studying Childcare or Early Years.
The Key Person approach has shown to be the most effective method of developing strong relationships with significant adults within the nursery setting. The Key Person gives each child the reassurance to feel secure and cared for helping them to become familiar with the nursery environment. The Key Person will observe your child and focus on how we can develop their learning.
The Key Person is also the first point of contact for you, you will be introduced to your child’s key Person on your first settling in visit, they will be there to support this transition stage and discuss any concerns as well as to start building the all important bond with your child before they start nursery.
The Key Person is there to meet the needs of your child whilst in their care and respond sensitively to their feelings, ideas and behaviour
