The Oasis Childcare Centre welcomes and encourages the involvement of parents/carers, grandparents and the local authority. Working in partnership with parents provides the children with the best possible start!
We are always happy to have help during sessions if you have time - cooking, reading, playing or maybe sports activities. We often arrange to have visitors, including animals, and take trips out with the children helping to introduce them to their wider environment. Fund-raising activities are great ways to get involved. Money raised is always ploughed back into the nursery, building up resources for the children. Help is always needed and appreciated!
Parents are kept informed and up to date on current interests of children with daily diaries and monthly newsletters, and they are encouraged to get involved or bring items into the setting to share and display. A Key Person system is in place giving that personal touch for each parent and child. Parent Consultation evenings are arranged twice a year (at the end of the Autumn Term and end of the Summer Term) to share your child’s learning journey and to discuss their learning and development. This is alongside everyday informal chats at the beginning and end of each session.
We ask parents to read our policies and procedures and welcome their feedback. Parent's ideas and thoughts for further development of The Oasis Childcare Centre are sought through parental questionnaires, which are issued twice per year. Please remember to fill them in!
We have parent members of our Committee. If you would like to get involved, please speak to a member of staff!
