Parental Code of Conduct

At Little Miracles Day Nursery we are very fortunate to have supportive and friendly parents. Our parents recognise that educating children is a process that involves partnership between parents, staff and the community. As a partnership, our parents understand the importance of a good working relationship, to equip children with the necessary skills for moving on to school. For these reasons we continue to welcome and encourage parents and carers to participate in the nursery life.

The purpose of this policy is a reminder to all parents, carers and visitors to the nursery about the expected conduct. This is so we can continue to flourish, progress and achieve in an atmosphere of mutual understanding.

  • Respect the ethos of the nursery
