Parental Involvement

Parental Involvement Policy

Parents are the first educators of their young children.  The aim of the group is to support their essential work, not to supplant them. We will:

  • Make all new parents aware of the group’s systems and policies.

  • Encourage parents, on an individual basis, to play an active part in the management of the group.

  • Ensure that parents are informed on a regular basis about their child’s progress.

  • Ensure that all parents have opportunities to contribute from their own skills, knowledge and interests to the activities of the group; with prior arrangement.

  • Involve parents in record keeping about their own child, either formally or informally.

  • Consult with families about the times of meetings to avoid excluding anyone.

  • Hold meetings in venues, which are accessible and appropriate for all.

  • Welcome the contribution of parents, whatever form these may take.

  • Make known to all parents the systems for registering queries, complaints or suggestions.

  • Provide opportunities for parents to learn about Joey’s curriculum and about young children’s learning, in Joeys and at home.

  • Ensure that all parents are fully informed about meetings, conferences, workshops and training.

  • Ensure that the children’s files are available in their key-worker boxes in reception. Parents are free to take these home to add to, comment on or read at anytime.

  • Parents’ meetings will be held to discuss individual key-children and their development.
