Park View Nursery School

We are very proud of Parkview Nursery School which provides the young children of Millom and the surrounding villages with high quality early years education in an exciting and stimulating environment. Our friendly and dedicated staff care for and support the children. Parents are the most important people in their children's lives and when your child comes to Nursery we build on the foundations which you have laid and will continue to develop at home. The partnership and relationship we build with parents is essential for the child's happiness and development.

We try to plan our curriculum around children's interests and will talk to you about what your child has been doing. Parents bring their children into Nursery at the beginning of the session and are welcome to look round to see what activities are happening - children are often keen to show their parent how the tadpoles are growing etc. Your child's key worker will always be happy to talk with you - they will always try to tell you if something important has happened and will be happy to arrange a time to talk to you if you have any concerns. We also arrange more formal meetings for you to talk to your child's keyworker about your child's progress.

We keep a Learning Story for each child, this contains observations, photos, examples of their work etc. and shows how they are learning and developing at school. This will come home with the child at the end of the year and is available throughout the year for you to share with your child and their family. We are always happy to have contributions from home to put in these books and sheets are available from Nursery.

Description

The progress and development of all children is monitored and reviewed.  If there is any cause for concern about a child’s development we work closely with parents to assess the child’s needs and put a plan in place to support the child.

We are aware that early identification and support is critical to ensure improved outcomes and so we begin the process of identifying the needs of all children on a home visit before they start nursery and continue during their time with us by close observation and assessment against levels of development typical for their age.
