Working in Partnership with Parents
At Durham University Day Nursery we believe that good communication between the Nursery and our parents is extremely important, and we do all we can to ensure good communication. Our staff will communicate with parents/carers daily, both verbally and via 'home books' where staff and parents/carers can exchange information about the child.
The Nursery has a notice-board which is kept up-to-date and information is regularly sent home with children. The Officer-in-Charge operates an open door policy, and parents/carers are encouraged to feel that they can approach staff and management of the Nursery at any time about any issue relating to their child(ren). The key-person plays an important role in providing detailed information about the child’s time at the Nursery and their development.
The Nursery also produces a regular newsletter, holds a regular Nursery Users Forum, and has a nominated Parent Representative who can be contacted at any time.
