Partnership with Parents

At Pixies we work in partnership with parents to meet the individual needs of every child.  We invite parents and carers into the nursery on a regular basis to share any experience and knowledge with the children related to our termly topics.  We are very proud of our ‘open door’ policy and we welcome and value our parents' opinions.  As well as parents taking an active part in the normal nursery day, we have regular occasions throughout the year that parents are invited to such as Sports Day, the Christmas Play, Leavers Graduation and termly parent meetings. For parents and carers that cannot always be available for ongoing verbal communication we provide a Contact Book for each child which goes back and forth between home and nursery as a means for a child’s key person and parents to communicate with each other in writing.

Social Events

At Pixies, we enjoy having as many events as possible. We feel that these events create a sense of unity and togetherness, which underpins our School ethos. Every Christmas, we have a Christmas show, which the parents are invited to watch in the Church. The Christmas production is always a special event and we put a great deal of effort into this. After the show, we invite the parents upstairs, for mulled wine and mince pies.

In the summer, we go on a School trip. We invite as many parents as possible, so that they can be a part of this exciting experience. We also go for walks on Clapham Common, once a term and again invite all the parents to join us.

We celebrate many special events throughout the year, such as Chinese New Year or Diwali for example. All parents are invited to come in on these days and share any ideas or information they may have relating to these events.

Parent's Breakfast

Every term, Pixies has a parent’s breakfast. We encourage parents to stay and meet other parents, play with their child and have a chat with their child’s class teacher. We believe it is extremely important for parents to play an active role in their child’s learning.

Contact Book

Every Friday, each class teacher will write in the children’s contact book, explaining what the children have done during the week, what events may have happened and what the children particularly did or did not like. This book goes home with the children and we ask the parents to write what the children did over the weekend. This helps us to support and extend children’s learning and development.
