Parent Partnership

Parents are the most important people in their children’s early lives and the child’s first educators. Children learn about the world and their place in it through their conversations, play activities, and routines with parents and families. … By working together parents and practitioners can enhance children’s learning and development.

At Happy Children Nursery we believe that children benefit most from early years care and education when parents and settings work together as a partnership. We understand that parents find it hard separating from children at such an early age which is why we endeavor to make strong links with parents and families. We will be posting some of the activities we have done to help strengthen the parent and practitioner partnerships:

A child brought into nursery a necklace for her key person which she made in one of the EasyPeasy activities at home.

Parents shared their child’s interest with space, so the key person set up spaceship in the role play area.

One of our parent doctors visited the nursery when the children had a doctors surgery in the role play area.

Children took home ingredients for soup from nursery and then made soup at home.

Some of our friends at nursery went to the Aquarium with their family in the holiday, so we set up an Aquarium in our role play area.

Children took a leaf hunt activity home and collected different leaves with the parents/carers

In Rabi Al Awaal we had parent visitors come to the nursery to tell children stories about the Life of Prophet Muhammed.

Children learnt about how the Prophet Muhammed walked.

How the Prophet slept.

For our bake sale the parents, children and staff all contributed in baking some delicious cakes and biscuits. Due to everyone’s kind generosity we raised £481.84. All money raised was given to a local charity.

Sharing items children brought from home in their ‘all about me bags’

Children took vegetables home to make soup and then shared their experience.
