"Thank you for nurturing, supporting, educating and much more. My daughter has had a wonderful time at Whizz Kids and had the foundation set."


"The effort you go to is so visible in the events you organise and the everyday activities you do. Mostly, it is watching the children run into nursery that shows what a wonderful job you are doing."


"I am so happy that my son is a confident chatty boy and I know that all the love and attention you gave him has contributed to this. Whizz Kids is a lovely setting and my son has flourished here."

Parental Involvement Policy

We believe that children benefit most from early years education and care when parents and settings work together in partnership. 

Our aim

Our aim is to support parents as their children's first and most important educators by involving them in their children's education and in the full life of the setting. We also aim to support parents in their own continuing education and personal development.

Partnership with Parents

  • Some parents are less well represented in early year settings; these include fathers, parents who live apart from their children but who still play a part in their lives as well as working parents.  In carrying out the following procedures, we will ensure all parents are included.
  • When we refer to “parents” we mean both mothers and fathers; these include both natural or birth parents as well as step-parents and parents who do not live with their children, but have contact with them and play a part in their lives.  “Parents” also includes same sex parents as well as foster parents.
  • “Parental responsibility” is all the rights, duties, powers and responsibilities and authority which by law a parent of a child has in relation to the child and his property.


In order to fulfil these aims we:

  • are committed to ongoing dialogue with parents to improve our knowledge of the needs of their children and to support their families;
  • have a mean to ensure all parents are included – that may mean we have different strategies for involving fathers or parents who work or live apart from their children.
  • Consult with all parents to find out what works best for them.
  • inform all parents about how the setting is run and its policies through access to written information and through regular informal communication. We check to ensure parents understand the information that is given to them;
  • inform all parents on a regular basis about their children's progress;
  • involve parents in the shared record keeping about their children - either formally or informally - and ensure parents have access to their children's written developmental records;
  • provide opportunities for parents to contribute their own skills, knowledge and interests to the activities of the setting;
  • inform parents about relevant conferences, workshops and training;
  • consult with parents about the times of meetings to avoid excluding anyone;
  • provide information about opportunities to be involved in the setting in ways that are accessible to parents with basic skills needs, or those for whom English is an additional language;
  • hold meetings in venues that are accessible and appropriate for all;
  • welcome the contributions of parents, in whatever form these may take;
  • inform all parents of the systems for registering queries, complaints or suggestions and check to ensure these are understood. 
  • provide opportunities for parents to learn about the curriculum offered in the setting and about young children's learning, in the setting and at home.

In compliance with the Welfare Requirements, the following documentation is in place:

  • admissions policy;
  • complaints procedure;
  • record of complaints; and
  • developmental records of children
