Working with Parents
I have a full range of policies and procedures to help my setting run smoothly, you will be given full copies of these when you visit. These include:
Partnership with Parents
It is important for your child that we work in partnership, to be able to give your child continuity of care and to reduce any confusion with different standards of boundaries and behaviour.
I like organising settling in sessions for the parents and child. This will give you the opportunity to provide me with lots of information about your child, what they like and dislike, their routines, favourite activities and how they like to be comforted when upset. I helps me build up a relationship with you and to understand both you and your child’s needs or wishes.
I am happy for you to stay until you feel happy your child is settled. I will work with you to make your child feel happy and relaxed in my home during this transition period.
If you feel you want to call me during the day then please do not panic if I do not answer or am unable to speak for long as I could be attending to changing a nappy or feeding a child.
If you have any concerns about your child’s behaviour, development, eating etc. I will discuss them with you and if necessary work with you to seek support from outside agencies.
When dropping your child off please let me know in advance if you intend to arrive at a different time from the contracted one, because if you turn up unexpectedly early I may not be ready to care for your child. Your child will be recorded on a register on arrival.
I will only release your child from my care to an adult who you have given written permission to or in event of an emergency a password only known to yourself. I will need a list of authorised persons who you consent to collect your child, and it would help if you gave me a description of what this person looks like so that I can keep it on file. I will ensure no child leaves the premises unsupervised.
Could you please arrive at the contracted times to collect your child as children do learn the routine and know when their home time is due, so as not to distress your child if you are to be late could you please ring in advance to allow me to reassure your child that you are on your way, and if need be organise additional activities to occupy your child.
