Our open door policy means that you are always welcome to tell us how your child is doing on a daily basis. Telephone calls can be used if parents work and are unable to bring/collect your child from preschool.
When your child starts at Brook we give you information explaining the EYFS and how we can work together to support your child’s learning.
Assessment systems are in place including the two-year progress review and termly progress review with next steps, all linking to the EYFS ages and stages of development.
You are able to access your child’s e-learning journal at any time to share information and record the children’s play and learning in and outside of the setting. You can view and add comments and photographs from the comfort of their own home via a secure password system.
If your child has an Individual Education and Care plan, we will have joint meetings with you and other professionals involved in the plan every three months to review progress.
We have termly parent meetings to discuss your child’s progress and any concerns, how best to support your child, and to give you ideas for activities at home that will mirror what we do at preschool. Parent helper sessions allow you to stay and help and see how your child is developing in the setting. If your child has specific identified needs, we will work (with advice from other agencies if needed) to support your child. We will discuss with you on a regular basis, how your child is doing and discuss any new information we may need to have.
Newsletters are posted on our website and Facebook, and information is displayed in our display cabinets and entrance area. Notices are put up with what is happening at Brook and a list of learning intentions and activities are displayed enabling you to further support your child’s learning.
We are a very welcoming and happy setting. We have regular events through the year, for instance dads challenge and gardening week, enabling you to build relationships with practitioners in the setting.
