A Key Carer in a nursery plays an important role in strengthening parent partnerships.
The Key Carer works in collaboration with the parents, providing updates, taking their perspectives and ideas into account, and sharing information about the child's development, including observations and records of their progress.
By establishing a warm and nurturing relationship with the child and maintaining open communication with the parents, the Key Carer builds trust with both the child and the parents. Additionally, the key carer empowers parents by providing them with information, resources, and strategies to support their child's development at home.
This approach creates a partnership between the nursery and the parents, working together to support the child's growth and development. This collaborative and supportive environment promotes the best interests of the child and their overall wellbeing.
