Key Person

At Thornton Hough Pre-School/Playgroup we believe that children flourish best when there is a strong partnership between a Key Person and parent/carers. This enables us to support your child’s development and learning.

Our Key Person system gives each member of staff particular responsibility for just a small group of children. Each child in the group has one special adult that they can relate to which we find, often makes settling in much easier. In edition your child’s Key Person is in a position to tailor the group’s activities to the unique needs and development of each individual child.

The Key Person maintains links with the child’s parents/carers, engaging and supporting them in guiding their child’s development both in the setting and at home.

The Key Person keeps excellent records in accordance with the Early Years Development and Childcare Partnership. These observations are then used as a basis for drawing up quality learning experiences for each child.
