At Robert Owen we aim to engage with mums, dads and carers before your child even starts the nursery. This process begins at your initial enquiry as we aim to find hours for your child that best fit with your requirements. Our home visits before your child starts are a chance for us to get to know you and your child e.g. what your child is interested in, how you spend time together, any special medical or dietary needs, answering any fears or concerns you might have.
Starting nursery is a daunting process (often more so for the parent than the child) so we will consult with you through the settling in period (however long that takes). Staff are always available at the beginning and end of your child’s session to share information and if you want to book a particular appointment to see your key person please just ask. We have a formal parent consultation each term where we will share your child’s learning and progress and you can share with us how your child is doing at home.
"It is lovely that my carer always tells me how A's day went at pick up. I am informed everyday" (JK pss2016)
How to get more involved
We hold a parent forum meeting once a month (usually during the day, and occasionally in the evening to meet the needs of working families) where you can share your views and ideas on the Nursery School and Children’s Centre.
If you want to let us know your views in other ways please talk to us, look out for the family voice boxes around the nursery school and children’s centre or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We want to hear from you as the service we provide is all about you and your child and we want to make it work in the best possible way for each individual family. Any feedback is used positively to improve the work that we do.
As a maintained Nursery School and Children’s Centre we value the needs of the community and ask for you to help shape our service.
