Hi all, I'm looking into Pre-Schools and like any parent, I want a good parent partnership. I've heard that some do daily diaries, parents evenings and wow sheets. What have your experiences been? Thanking you all in advance Alice
My DS's preschool offers an opportunity for a parent teacher interview when ever parents need one one- they don't set aside particular evenings for it. I guess some parents don't opt in but we have one every 6 months and I have found them excellent.
Open door policy, parents were always welcome to talk to staff at beginning or end of sessions, staff often approached parents to talk about any concerns/achievements. They also ran a compulsory parent rota, where each session had a parent in attendance. Younger siblings were able to attend at the same time if necessary. I found this to be a fantastic way of seeing the day to day running if the preschool, and really getting to know what your child's time at preschool was like. Also you got to know the staff really well.
