Key Worker Policy
A keyworker has special responsibility for a particular child. The keyworker will work with the child and his/her parents/carers to ensure the child’s care and educational needs are fully met.
The keyworker’s aim is to ensure the child is happy and feels secure at Joeys and to observe, encourage and extend the child’s learning experiences.
Ideally the keyworker should stay with the child throughout his/her time at Joeys. However because of the type of sessional care offered at Joeys it is not always possible to retain the same keyworker. The child is allocated to a member of staff who attends most of the child’s sessions.
Main duties of a keyworker
The key worker is always aware of being a member of the Joeys team of staff and will work with, care for, look after and be responsible for other children attending sessions in addition to his/her key children.
If you have any queries or concerns about our keyworker system please speak to the Manager.
