Our key person system gives each member of staff particular responsibility for just a few children. Each child is allocated a member of staff when they begin pre-school. This staff member is responsible for settling your child into pre-school, record keeping, observing and ensuring that your child’s interests and developmental needs are being met. Should your child’s key person not be in pre-school on a particular day there is a nominated deputy who takes responsibility for your child’s well-being. These nominated staff are represented at the front of your child’s learning journey by photographs. Please do ask your child’s key person if you are unsure or have any questions on any matter.
