Our key person system ensures:

● Each member of staff has particular responsibility for a small number of children.
● Each child has one special adult to relate to, assisting with settling in.
● The key person can easily tailor the curriculum to the unique needs of each individual child.
● Parent and carer contact is focussed on one member of staff, so allowing a better link to the home setting.
● All Key person’s have a buddy to support children in the instance of staff absence.
