Parents and the wider community

We encourage parental involvement at every level within pre-school, parents are the childs first educator. We strongly believe that parents know their child best, about their strenghts and weaknesses. We like to build on childrens achievements thus far, so parental inputs into play plans are really important.
We like to draw up and revise each childs play plans with their parents when they have thier rota day. At the end of term we have coffee mornings which give all parents the chance to look at their childs portfolios.

Parents / Carers Rota

We have a rota for helpers in the group, this provides additional staffing for the pre-school and rota duty enables parents to see how the pre-school operates. At the beginning of each term parents will be given a rota showing when they are on duty. Please tell the Playleader if you require a specific day or date, or need to swap. There is specific advice for parents staying in pre-school on rota duty, please read the planning sheet on the notice board.
 
St Johns Pre-School is registered by Ofsted to provide sessional daycare, enabling pre-school to offer free child places to children from the term after they are 3. You can view our most recent 2007 full inspection report on the ofsted website
