Parents as Partners

With our open door policy, we allow time at the start and end of sessions to talk informally with parents and carers about their child. This is an opportunity to share information about developments and achievements and any issues which may arise. This information sharing time is invaluable not only to the setting but to the child and the parents as well.

We are a small, friendly setting and although each child has a named key person, all of the staff in the setting have a good relationship with the children in our care and their parents, which makes information sharing achievable.

There is an area available for more private and confidential discussion should the need arise. Please let the manager know if you wish to speak more privately or arrange a formal meeting.

Throughout the year we hold various events to which families are invited; these range from productions and sing-a-longs, fundraising events, sports day to external trips. As a charity we rely on fundraising to help us purchase new and updated equipment for the children and appreciate any fundraising support that parents, carers and the wider community can offer.

We welcome parents who wish to volunteer during sessions either on a regular or ad hoc basis. If you feel you could spare some time to volunteer at the Preschool, reading stories, helping with cooking or arts and crafts, please let us know.

At Corby Glen Preschool, we welcome comments and ideas from parents, which can benefit the children and the setting. We are a charity run by a management committee which comprises staff members and (former and existing) parents elected at the Annual General Meeting. Any new parents and carers are welcome to join the committee so they can have a say in how the setting is run. All help and involvement is greatly appreciated. For further details, please email
