The importance of the key person...
The key person is a named practitioner who has responsibilities for a small group of children, they are there to help the child feel safe and secure. The role is important for both child and parent and it is an approach set out in the Early Years Foundation Stage.
Each child at Bumbles Day Nursery is assigned a key person to help ensure that every child’s care is tailored to meet their individual needs, to help the child become familiar with the nursery, offer a settled relationship for the child and build a relationship with their parents.
Each child will be assigned a key person who will be introduced to the child and parents on your child's first day. The key person helps ensure that every child’s learning and care is tailored to meet their individual needs and provides a firm bridge between nursery and home life. The key person will support parents in guiding their child’s development at home and would help families engage with more specialist support if necessary.
