Working together with parents

Parent involvement during their child's time at Cuddington Community Nursery is very important to us.

Working closely with parents, benefits the children greatly in their learning and development. Having good relationships with families helps us to plan for individuals to progress to their full potential. 

Here are some ways to get involved:


Washing dressing up clothes/aprons-.

Dressing up clothes and cooking aprons regularly need a wash so if you are able to support with this then it would be much appreciated, please speak to a member of staff who will be very grateful.


Wow moments-

Parents are invited to use these at any time to share with us your child’s achievements that they are proud of outside of nursery. This can be anything from 'putting a coat on by themselves', 'using the toilet independently' or anything else that we can work together to encourage. Please ask a member of the team for the wow moment certificates.



Our resident bear loves to go home with the children and go on exciting new adventures.
Parent’s involvement with this initiative is great for building children's confidence to speak in a group situation when sharing the diary and experiences.


Parent comments, complaints and questionnaires-

Every now and then parents are asked to fill in questionnaires to assess the effectiveness of our nursery provision.

Parents are invited to leave us comments, compliments or complaints with their child's key person or Nursery Manager at any time and all comments are taken seriously.

Ongoing communication between parents and the key person are encouraged at drop off and pick up times.
