At Mulberry Pre-School we value parents as the first educators of children. We believe that children benefit most from Early Years education when parents/carers and Pre-School work collaboratively.
We work in partnership with our parents and support home learning by:
Detailing the focus of learning at Pre-School by sharing half-termly and weekly planning overviews.
Developing a consistent approach to supporting self-care skills both at home and at Pre-School.
Encouraging parents/carers to come into Pre-School and support activities for example, cooking, reading & craft making.
Invite parents/carers to our stay and play sessions.
Discuss any difficulties children may be experiencing at an early stage and considering the next steps with parental involvement.
News, Updates and Weekly Learning
We also use Tapestry, a secure online learning journal to record photographs, observations and comments, in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum, to build up a record of your child’s experiences during their time with us and to keep you informed about your child’s learning. It also allows parents/carers to add their own observations about their child.
