We value your role as your child’s first and most enduring educator and it is of the utmost importance to us that you and our professionals caring for your child work together. The closer our nursery teams work in partnership with you, the more rewarding your child’s development will be.
At Cressington Manor partnerships are nurtured and allowed to blossom naturally whilst your child grows with us. Our approach will ensure that you feel confortable about exchanging information and discussing all aspect of your child, to allow us to provide individual care to suit your needs.
By working in partnership with you we can ensure that your child feels secure, loved and cherished while they are away from home.
Our door is always open with regular opportunities for formal and informal discussions about your child's progress. As our management team and your child's 'key person' love to hear from all our parents, we make time to discuss all aspect of your child's care and development.
You are able to ring directly to your child's room during the day to speak with your child's key person. Ringing directly to your key person provides you with extra peace of mind during settling in periods or during times when your child is not feeling very well.
All children at Cressington Manor will have a 'My Learning Journal' file. You have access to your child's 'My Learning Journal' file at all times and may request a copy at reception.
Your child's 'My Learning Journal' file will be produced by your child's key person and will celebrate all of your child's experiences at nursery from; their friends, activities they have participated in, to their development.
Over time you will see that your child's 'My Learning Journal' file will tell a story about your child's time at nursery and in turn it helps us to understand and support your child's individual needs. Your child's 'My Learning Journal' is important as it one of many tools that allows your child's key person to plan with you the next steps of your child's learning and development and keeps you up to date with your child's progress.
Monthly newsletters and progress reports ensure that you keep up to date with your child's development, nursery news and all the exciting events that are held at the nursery throughout the year.
