“At the end of the day, the most overwhelming key to a child’s success is the positive involvement of parents.”
– Jane D. Hull
At Blue Butterfly Montessori we pride ourselves in our parent partnerships. We believe that it is imperative that we share every moment of a child’s learning journey with our parents whether it be; settling into nursery for the first time, achieving a milestone, engaging with extra-curricular or general preferences.
We promote this through our dedicated key person approach, where a child will be allocated a member of staff who will care for his/her main care routines. The staff member will build a bond/attachment with the child to ensure a smooth and enjoyable transition into nursery as well as being a point of call for any necessary emotional refuelling. This individual will provide daily handovers to the parent as well as updating their communication diary (Baby room) or uploading the child’s routine onto the Parent Portal App (Toddlers & Preschool). In addition to this, a rich parent’s evening report is completed termly by the keyworker to encourage consistency between nursery and home. Other communication tools include; termly newsletters, parent notice boards and activity home learning bags.
Although we consider development and academics to be a keen focus throughout the child’s nursery journey, we also recognise the importance of shared experiences. We organise a large range of events throughout our age groups and invite our parents to celebrate on site with us. We consistently take on feedback from our parents regarding where they would appreciate professional support and guidance. This has resulted in an array of parental workshops hosted by our highly trained designated leads.
At Blue Butterfly Montessori, we consider ourselves a community and support, share and connect with our families.
