Key Workers

The Nursery Leader oversees the team who care for all of the children. However, a member of staff, or key worker, is designated to certain children as their main carer.

The transition from home to Nursery can be a big step for children, but it is made far easier with the help of a key worker. Each child is allocated a key worker on joining the nursery. The role of the key worker is not only to care for and provide reassurance to the child during the settling in period, but also to foster a close, caring relationship that will continue throughout their time in the nursery class. This member of staff will be responsible for the upkeep of your child’s Learning Journey folder and will meet with you to discuss your child’s progress at parent/teacher consultations.
