Children’s Place Day Nurseries work extremely closely with parents and families to make sure the experience given to children is happy one and each child gets tailored care specific to their needs. Encouraging parents to participate and contribute to their child’s nursery achievement portfolio helps promote positive attitudes and experiences, which in turn benefit the child.
Children’s Place wishes to ensure parents are part of the care and education team within the nursery. We want to work with parents as partners to ensure quality care and learning for all children. At Children’s Place:
- Parents have access to their child’s records and are consulted in respect of the care given.
- Parents are welcome to access or inspect all the policies of the nursery at any time; please speak to the Nursery Manager if you wish to do so.
- Nursing mothers are welcomed and a private area made available whenever needed.
- All suggestions from parents are given consideration and discussed fully.
- Parents Evenings and Parents Forums are to be held at least twice a year.
It is important for us at Children s Place that we, as carers, are able to give advice and support, always showing sensitivity and understanding. We are always open to suggestions, questions and advice so please do not hesitate to contact any of the Nursery Managers for more information.
NHS Trust Partnerships
Children’s Place Day Nurseries are proud to work in partnership with NHS Trusts across West Yorkshire. We pride ourselves on offering high quality childcare to NHS Trust staff, working closely with the Trust Childcare Support Services to ensure that we meet the needs of parents and families requiring flexibility and on site provision. We also have a number of places available for families looking for childcare but who are not employees of the NHS.

Sure Start Partnerships
Children’s Place Day Nurseries strive to provide fantastic, high quality care to all children. Our settings work closely in partnership with Sure Start Children’s and Family Centres, working together to give every child equal opportunities as we focus on ‘early years experiences that last a lifetime’.
As a nursery, we have a commitment to helping and supporting parents and families, therefore we also work closely with the Children and Family Centre staff to ensure that families engaging with the centre are offered tailored childcare support. Children’s Place Day Nurseries ensure our partnerships are strong and that there is good communication across the nursery and our partnership agencies, which enables us to offer children high quality care on a long or short term basis.
