Your ‘key person’

At All Saints Pre-school you and your child will receive support from an experienced member of staff responsible for your child’s individual needs.

This ‘key person’ will take the time to find out from you about your child’s interests, likes, dislikes and special requirements. Although the key person will be your main point of contact, all staff will be happy to feedback on your child’s developmental progress on a daily basis or discuss any concerns with you.

Your child’s key person will also keep records of your child’s progress and achievements which are available for you to see and, most importantly, contribute your own views. You can see your child’s key person on the Meet the Staff page.
