In partnership with parents
Parents are a valued part of the team at Footprints Montessori Nursery, a culture recognised in our recent Ofsted inspection in which we were graded as ‘Outstanding’ for our partnership with parents.
We provide a regular newsletter explaining what is happening in the nursery and always invite comments on what we are doing or planning. All parents have an opportunity to speak to their child’s key person every day and will receive detailed feedback on the day's activities.
Encouraging parent involvement
We encourage parents to join in with nursery activities wherever possible, including summer sports days, events for new parents and courses to help with learning at home. We also hold annual parents evenings at which parents have the chance to discuss their child’s progress in depth with both their key person and the managers.
We value our parents’ opinions, which is why we carry out annual surveys to find out how parents feel about the nursery, our practice and try to discover new ways in which we might improve year on year. In a recent parent survey 97% of parents rated their overall experience of the nursery as 'Excellent' or 'Very Good'.
