Early Years Practitioner (Key Person)
Every child at Glen Jakes Nursery is treated as an individual and this starts from the moment your child is first introduced to the nursery. We ask for your help to understand and find out about your child's interests, abilities and needs. With this information we then select the most suitable Early Years Practitioner to become your child's Key Person. The Key Person will help your child to settle in and achieve the most out of their time at nursery.
Your child's Key Person will be your main point of contact at the nursery. The Key Person will help your child to familiarise themselves with the setting and to feel safe and confident in it. They will guide you through your child's journey at nursery and work with you through significant milestones, weaning, toilet training and preparing for the transition to school.
The Key Person will work in partnership with the parents/carers and with other agencies to ensure the care and development for the child is consistent.
