Child Development Supporter

At Cherry Childcare we operate a “Child Development records System”.  Each child is assigned a member of the team in their group room.  This Child Development Supporter is responsible for helping both you and your child to settle into the nursery.  They will explain the daily routines of the nursery with particular emphasis on aspects of your child’s individual needs e.g. potty training, dietary requirements, likes and dislikes, etc.

Your Child Development Supporter will talk to you informally when you arrive to collect your child, letting you know the events of the day.  During these times she is also available to discuss any items of immediate concern e.g. if your child has not slept, is feeling unwell or has not eaten.

The progress of all children is monitored using our Child Development Records These are updated regularly and provide a very effective way of monitoring your child’s progress throughout their nursery life.  Annually, we have a Parent’s Evening when your Child Development Supporter will talk to you in detail about your child’s progress; the Development Record is used as the basis for the discussion but are available to you at any time.
