Parents do not come into the nursery on a regular basis to help, although occasionally a parent will be invited in to talk to the children on an area of expertise. At parent- staff sessions, we invite parent helpers to come and work alongside the staff and learn what Blossom Patch Nursery is about. The parent is never left with the children unsupervised by staff. No more than one parent would be asked to join us at any one time.
Students are able to come for work placement. These must always be booked in advance. They are supervised at all times and are never left alone with a child. No student/helper/visitor under the age of 17 years would ever be counted in our Adult: Child Ratio.
