Working in Partnership with Parents and Carers.
Essential to our success is the relationship between the nursery, parents and carers, which is also crucial to the wellbeing, development and progress of your child. During your child’s time at Roots and Wings, we will encourage and promote a two-way flow of information and expertise. The more we know about your child and the more you know about us, the more successful we will be in creating a partnership that is fully supportive of your child’s welfare and development. Bearing in mind that your child could be with us for a few years, it is essential we establish an environment that makes it easy to exchange information and views. We sincerely believe this to be a joint effort between the nursery, parents and carers. We will do our best to ensure that this partnership succeeds.
