We are passionately committed to working in partnership with parents. We believe parents are the experts on their child and that positive relationships support children to achieve and feel happy. We are always available to chat and discuss progress or concerns, it is this personal approach that results in our families feeling relaxed and a part of the Kangaroo Kids Community. We hold several Parent/Teacher meetings throughout the year. We prefer to talk face to face and get to know your family, but this is not always easy with the demands of family life. We use emails and our Famly App to share good news, pictures and information.as well as our popular social media platforms; Facebook and Instagram. Teachers send out daily posts of updates and pictures of what the children have been learning and doing.
Every classroom has a working wall which displays the children’s interests and teachable moments that are happening within the class. There is also the children’s wow moments and next steps on display for the parents to view and see what is happening with their child’s learning. Monthly ‘learning journal days’ are held as an opportunity for parents to come in and be an active participant in their child’s learning. We run complimentary Parenting Workshops covering many areas such as Potty Training and Positive parenting, Developing language.
Finally, our parents are often seen chatting to staff on our sofas around the nursery at the end of the day, sharing stories about the children. We genuinely encourage parents to join us in the nursery, in the classroom or at special days and events.
We are especially keen to encourage parents to come and read a story, celebrate birthdays and join us on field trips. Kangaroo Kids Nursery is a community with a common goal: to ensure the children are happy, safe and secure; and a strong home/nursery relationship is the first step to achieving that.
