In community-based settings that are members of the Early Years Alliance, whether sessional settings or full day care nurseries, all parents are regarded as members who have full participatory rights.

These include a right to be:

  • valued and respected
  • kept informed
  • consulted
  • involved
  • included at all levels

We also depend on the good will of parents and their involvement to keep going. Membership of the setting also carries expectations on parents for their support and commitment. This is the basis of the ‘mutuality’ that characterises a Early Years Alliance member setting.

At Grove Road Pre-school, we work closely with parents and carers. We recognise the important role parents play in the education of their child and develop an open relationship to enable us to work together effectively.

Our staff are always available to discuss any matters with you concerning your child.

We will inform you at the start of each term what specific activity or topic we will be covering with the children. In addition we have a notice board to keep you up-to-date with events and news.

We welcome your comments or any feedback you may have.
