Little Angels Nursery....helping build strong foundations for future learning

Key Person

When your child joins the nursery you will be allocated a key person and a buddy to help support you and your child during the settling in process

Your Key person will:

  • Be responsive to children’s feelings and needs
  • Keep an especially watchful eye on the child during the settling in process, reassuring both the child and parents/carers where necessary
  • Assist new children as necessary to integrate into life at the nursery ensuring the child knows and understands any rules and feels comfortable with people and activities
  • Build up a relationship with the children in their care and is there to comfort and reassure them if necessary at times of distress.
  • Assist children with potty training and toileting by working closely together with parents/ carers
  • Be actively involved in making routine observations of the children
  • Build up an effective relationship, sharing information with parents/carers as required
  • Ensure that the child’s parents/carers are helped to understand the thinking behind the activities and equipment available in the nursery
  • Try to be aware of any changes in the child’s home circumstances, which may affect her or his behaviour or needs in nursery
  • Liaise with the SENDCO (Special Educational Needs and Disability Coordinator) or Behaviour Coordinator if appropriate
