We are proud of the high ratio of adults to children in our group. This ensures individual attention to the needs and development of each child. Our key worker system gives each member of staff particular responsibility for just a few children. Each child in the group has one special adult to relate to, which can make settling into the group very much easier.
In addition, the key worker is in a position to tailor the group’s curriculum to the unique needs of each individual child. The key worker maintains links with the child’s home setting, working with parents through shared record keeping to ensure that the children are supported in reaching their full potential.
Because so many adults help in the group, we are able to implement an excellent record keeping system in which observations of the children in the group and at home are used as a basis for drawing up a curriculum for each child. These records are available for the parents to see and can be discussed at open mornings in full with a member of staff.
