Partnerships With Parents

Little Dreams Nursery’s Partnership with Parents

You, as parents are the prime educators of your children in their earliest years. We therefore welcome and encourage parents involvement in the nursery.  We have an ‘open door’ policy in place and members of staff are always available to listen to your comments and suggestions.

Effective communication between parents and nursery staff is important to provide the best possible care for your children.  We would appreciate if you could inform nursery staff of any circumstances, either temporary or permanent which may affect your child’s emotional or physical well being to ensure your child receives additional support if necessary.  A member of staff will be available to speak to you on a daily basis to discuss your child’s progress and answer any questions you may have.

You will be kept informed of nursery events and activities through our notice board in the entrance hall, newsletters and via our website.  In your child’s room you will also find notice boards giving information on the day’s activities.

Confidentiality

All information regarding your child/family will be kept in the strictest confidence in accordance with the Data Protection Act.

Care Inspectorate (formerly the Care Commission)

Little Dreams Nursery are registered with the Care Inspectorate, who are the registration and inspection body for all pre-school centres in Scotland.  The nursery is inspected regularly by Care Inspectorate (usually unannounced) to ensure the high standards of childcare and education laid down in the National Care Standards are being met.
