KEYWORKER SYSTEMS

Within the setting we operate a keyworker system.  Each staff member is a key worker who is responsible for a small group of children.  They provide suitable actives for the children’s stage of development.  They will also plan activities to help further the children’s learning potential.  Each staff member works in close partnership with parents.  All messages and information is passed to and from the parents via their child’s keyworker.
