Partnership with families’ Policy
Our objective is to ensure all the families of children enrolled in Bedayati Nursery have the opportunity to share and exchange information about their child with practitioners.
Our aim is to develop an honest, open and supportive relationship which compliments life in your home rather than contradicts it. We are very aware of our influence as role models to your child and without your extensive knowledge of your child; we would be unable to enhance your child’s development. Nursery staff is always available to discuss your child and their development.
Bedayati Nursery recognizes the family as the cornerstone for healthy child development and well-being. Practitioners will strive to work in partnership with families to ensure the provision of quality care for young children.
We acknowledge the social and cultural diversity of families within the community and the uniqueness of each family in relation to parenting practices.
