Parent Partnerships

At West Rise Nursery we encourage and assist parents as prime educators of their children and work with them in partnership.

A good working relationship with parents/carers is vital to the wellbeing, education and development of your child.  All children are closely observed and their progress monitored and recorded.

Information on your child’s progress is available at all times, informally on a day to day basis or by appointment with your child’s keyworker or nursery lead, open evenings, drop in sessions.

We aim to form a relationship where parents/carer and staff can exchange information easily and comfortably.

We offer parent/carer termly consultation meetings to share feedback from the Nursery perspective and also seek any parent/carer input.

Parent/Carer Helpers/Volunteers

We also welcome opportunities to share skills or knowledge that you may have with the children and staff and love to welcome you into the nursery.  A DBS form needs to be completed as a safeguarding requirement.

Outside Agencies

We realise that whilst families and the nursery staff have a significant impact on the outcome for the children here at West Rise Nursery, there are also other sources of help where you can draw upon such as:

  1. Health Visitors
    We work alongside many health visitors to do the Integrated Progress Review/27-30 month  check.
  2. ISEND Early Years Service (EYS)
    This service support children aged 0-5 years with Special Educational Needs, Disabilities (SEND) and or Complex Needs, where those difficulties create a significant barrier to learning and/or inclusion.
