Providing your child with reassurance and security

At Tommies, we have adopted the Key Person approach so that your child develops a strong relationship with a practitioner during their time at nursery.

A key person will form a strong bond with your child, providing them with reassurance and security. Your child’s key person will help make the transition from home to nursery life as soon as possible. They will help your child to become more confident and join in with activities and learning experiences each day.

Understanding your child

Your child’s key person is in the best position to understand your child’s needs and will share information with you about their daily experiences.

They will invest time in getting to know your child and understand what makes them tick and what their interests are. They will also encourage your child to socialise with other children and staff members at the nursery.

Throughout each day, your child’s key person will record observations and log them in your child’s learning journey. This allows them to plan activities which are tailored to your child’s unique needs and interests.
