Your child will be assigned a ‘Key Person’ when they start at The Railway Nursery. Positive warm relationships are shared between the key person, children and families. Reassuringly, your child’s key person will always be available for daily discussions and to provide your child with a friendly welcome (and cuddle when needed!). The key person will support your child to quickly settle, become emotionally secure and confident to learn. The key person will work closely with families to understand routines, preferences and abilities and continue to deliver established routines, so children are happy and content. In addition the key person will be responsible for observing and recording your child’s development and progress. Liaising frequently with parents and carers, the key person will establish open communication to ensure we are meeting children’s individual needs, in order to provide the best possible care and learning opportunities.
