Your Child�s Development


We recognise the importance of maintaining a two-way flow of information between parents and staff.  Please check the notice board at Tiggers on which information for parents is displayed.  We will send important notices home with your child.  We would also ask that you provide us with an email address to allow us to communicate with you electronically.

If you have any concerns at all about your child or the childcare provided, please speak to either your key person or Clare Clarke-Jones (the Supervisor).  If they are unable to address your concerns to your satisfaction, please speak to Joanne Rees (Chair of the Committee).  We recognise that the matter may be confidential and can arrange an appointment outside of pre-school hours at your request.

Key Person:

Your child will be assigned a key person who will plan for your child’s individual learning, development and care (please see the list on the notice board).  The primary role of the key person is to develop a plan for your child’s development and to ensure that the plan is implemented.  At intervals the key person will ask you about your child’s interests and for your knowledge about your child’s development - after all nobody knows your child better than you do. The key person will use this information and the staff observations to plan the next steps in your child’s learning to challenge and stimulate them. All
the plans will be kept in each child's learning journal which is confidential. The key person will share this information with you about every six to eight weeks. However, please feel free to see your child’s learning journal or discuss your child’s development at any time.

Progress & Development:

You may wish to discuss your child’s progress with his/her key person (please see the board to find out who your child has been allocated to).  Tiggers maintains ongoing learning journals for each child.  These records are available to parents on request. We are happy to discuss your child’s development with you at any time.  We are also aware of the need for confidentiality so are happy to arrange a time with you outside of session times.
