Key Person

Each member of staff has responsibility for just a few children ensuring that your child has an adult to relate to. Research shows that a key person approach benefits the child, the parent, the staff and the setting by providing secure relationships in which children thrive, parents have confidence, staff are committed and the setting is a happy and dedicated place to work.


We pride ourselves in the skills of our key persons and how they interact with our individual children. Children are taught Makaton as part of their learning journey.

We want children to feel safe, stimulated and happy within the setting and to feel secure and comfortable with all members of staff.

Your child’s key person will use their knowledge and experience to incorporate their next steps into play activities alongside the curriculum which will be tailored to their individual needs and interests. The key person will work alongside parents, ensuring your child is supported in reaching their full potential.

Each key person carries out observations on your child, keeping an individual record of your child’s progress. As our nursery is a small personal setting it is important for us that all practitioners form bonds with all children attending. Key persons and staff are available to discuss with you your child’s progress and development at any time.


We also provide parents evenings and can arrange Early Help for families in need.
