How can you stay in touch?

Keeping in Touch

How we contact you:

In addition to our daily opportunities for sharing information between home and nursery, we will also communicate with you in the following ways:

  • An introductory phone call from our Early Years Officer and / or Key workers
  • Feedback on how your child is settling into Nursery
  • Stay, Play and Learn opportunities in the Nursery and Secret Garden
  • Monthly parent postcards to share your child’s learning and how you can help at home
  • On Showbie you will have access to current menus, leaflets, information from childcare agencies and voluntary groups, inspection reports and our current theme of learning
  • Regular updates of your child’s learning on Showbie
  • Occasional written communication will be put in your child’s bag
  • A transition meeting when your child is ready to move into Primary 1


How you can contact us:

Communication is really important to us. Your child’s keyworker or the Early Years Officer will always be happy to meet with you to discuss any questions or concerns you have. If it is an urgent concern and only a brief conversation is needed, it is best to speak to one of the team at the start of the day.

If you need to speak to a member of staff and are unable to do this at drop-off or collection time please don’t hesitate to contact the school office  (01573 224 264) and leave a message for a member of the Nursery team to return your call.

If your child is unwell and not able to attend nursery, it is important to phone the school office between 8:30 and 9:00 a.m. to let us know on the number above. Children ill with sickness or diarrhoea must remain at home for 48 hours from their last bout.

Karen Dixon, our Headteacher, has an open door policy and is always happy to meet parents and carers. Should you wish to schedule a meeting (to avoid a wait or in case she is out of the building), you can schedule a meeting through the school office or leave a message so that Mrs Dixon can return your call.
