Research shows that children learn better when their parents are involved. To this end, we have a voluntary helper rota. This gives the parents the opportunity to take part in the group to see what happens there and to talk about it afterwards with their child. The Rota is pinned up inside the main entrance, so please feel free to add your name.
- It provides parents with the opportunity to experience a typical Pre-School session.
- Children enjoy showing their parents/ carers their “special place”.
- It ensures that our adult/ child ratio is above requirements as well as providing an extra pair of hands to help staff wherever needed.
Please note: we recommend that new children are allowed to settle into Playgroup for at least a term before parents volunteer. Unfortunately, parents will be unable to bring siblings along to these sessions.
