Parents In The Nursery

We operate an open door policy at Blairmore. As parents you are always welcome in the nursery. The Head Teacher is always available to speak to you and your child’s key worker will pass on information on a daily basis.
We encourage you to take part in nursery activities and to spend time with your child.
We are delighted when parents join us in the playrooms or help out on trips.
Our website is regularly updated. You will find lots of information including monthly newsletters.

We also have a twitter account @blairmore1

Monthly newsletters and an updated weekly noticeboard keep you informed about what is happening on a regular basis.
We aim to develop nursery home links by producing a monthly ‘Learning at Home Leaflet’.
Each year we run workshops which parents will find interesting and informative.
At the start of the session we encourage parents to come along and find out what their children learn at nursery. It’s a “hands on” experience that helps parents understand why we do what we do!
Later on in the year we also run workshops that we hope will be of interest to parents of children who will soon be starting Primary School, e.g. Early reading skills, early maths and early writing skills.
We run workshops with help from people in the wider community, e.g. Healthy Eating Workshops led by local health professionals.
We also have opportunities during the year for parents to come along and discuss their child’s progress with their child’s Key Worker.

Parents/Staff Group

This group has a valuable role. It consists of parents and one member of staff who will discuss issues relating to the nursery and put forward suggestions. The group also has a fund raising function.
It raises money which helps to buy equipment for the nursery that nursery funds do not meet or subsidises trips for the children.
