Parent participation

Communication

We believe in working in partnership with our parents, therefore as well as communication with your child’s keyworker, we communicate via our website, emails, parent’s evenings, notice boards and monthly newsletters to keep you up to date with news and events. 

We were the first nurseries in Midlothian to introduce on line learning journals, we did this in August 2013. Please click here for more information. 

Parent's survey

We welcome feedback from parents on how we can improve our service.  We carry out an annual parent's survey and publish the results annually.

Parent's Forum

To maintain a high level of partnership with our parents we have a Parent’s Forum for each individual nursery.  We have had some great suggestions from our parent's forum.  Recent suggestions include trip locations.  We have visited the zoo, East Links Farm, Vogrie Country Park and Dalkeith Country park and we have had some parent helpers come along and join in the fun. 

Volunteering

We welcome parents to come and spend some time in the nursery with us if they can.  We have had parents support us with our gardens, tell the Preschool children about their jobs and play instruments.
