Key Workers

At Open Doors day nursery children are valued as an individual, and their needs are unique to them.

Each child has a dedicated key person assigned to them who works in their room and tracks their development, forms a close bond and plans their next steps. This person will build a special warm and caring relationship with both the child and parent/carer, ensuring that they settle in well at the nursery. The key person will often be the one to provide care to reassure the child.

The key worker will be there to provide information regarding your child’s development and if you have any concerns or would like to inform us of your child’s development, the key worker will ensure that all nursery staff connected with your child has been informed.
