Key Person

Each child is allocated a ‘Key Person’ prior to starting the pre-school.  This staff member will look after their development during their time at pre-school, be their main point of contact and provide reassurance and support, helping them to feel secure in the pre-school environment. 

Your child’s key person will create their Learning Journal, a record of their progress and development. This journal is on our online system "Tapestry" which parents can have access to if they wish.

The Learning Journal is continually updated as the staff undertake regular observations of each child.  The Key Person assesses the observations of their children and ensures an appropriate ‘next step’ is identified to support each child’s continued learning and development.

We place much importance on getting to know your child when they start at the setting.  Your child’s Key Person will talk to you and get to know you all at your New Starter Visit, and if your child has attended other settings we will contact them, with your permission, to obtain any information regarding their developmental progress.
