Key People and Training


Key People

Our key person system gives each member of staff particular responsibility for just a few children. Each child in the group has a special adult to relate to, which can make settling into the group much easier.

In addition the key person is in a position to tailor the group’s curriculum to the needs of each individual child. The key person maintains links with the child’s home setting, working with parents through shared record keeping to ensure that all children are supported in reaching their full potential.

Our membership of the Pre-school Learning Alliance ensures that we are constantly in touch with new thinking in the field of child education and care. On going training is available through Pre-school Learning Alliance (PLA) courses that welcome both staff and parents.
