We aim to work in partnership with parents as you know your children so well. We built our curriculum on strong relationships; our Key Person approach makes sure that all parents and carers have a person with whom they can discuss their child’s individual needs and strengths and share their achievements while at nursery. We share children’s progress via an app called Famly, you will receive an individual log in when your child starts at Vanessa Nursery. You will also be invited to meetings with your Key Person throughout the year to share your child’s progress.

Where children have special educational and development needs you and your child will be supported by your child’s Key Person, class teacher and SENCO to make sure your child has every opportunity to make good progress.

Members of the senior management team are always available as are the admin team by requesting a meeting either via email or phone.


It is imperative that children develop a positive attitude to school at this early age. Regular attendance really builds on your child’s self-esteem, friendships and access to the learning experiences on offer at nursery.
