Key Worker System

Our “key worker” system gives each member of staff particular responsibility for just a few children. This means that each child in the group has one special adult to relate to, which can make settling into the group very much easier. In addition, the “key worker” is in a position to tailor the group’s curriculum to the unique needs of each individual child.

The “key worker” maintains links with the child’s home setting, working with parents through shared record keeping to ensure that all children are supported in reaching their full potential.
