The Early Years Foundation Stage states that "Each child must be assigned a key person. Their role is to help ensure that every child's care is tailored to meet their individual needs, to help the child become familiar with the setting, offer a settled relationship for the child and build a relationship with their parents." Research has shown that a Key Person approach is the most effective way of ensuring that children develop a strong relationship with a significant adult within the setting. At Grunty's Day Care each child has their own key person, this special person:


– Reassures and helps each child to feel secure; helping them to settle and become confident within their new environment.

– Meets the individual needs of each child in their care responding sensitively to their feelings, ideas and behaviour.

– Offers continuity, security and reassurance to your child, usually being the one to feed, change and soothe.

– Will be in the best position to understand and meet your child's needs and to share information with you about your child's experiences in nursery.

– Will be responsible for the children within their key group, ensuring their progress and development needs are met.

– Will observe the children during their play in order to plan future learning opportunities and experiences.

– Last but certainly not least each key person will ensure strong bonds are built with you the parent or carer. Working in partnership to ensure the best quality care is given to your child
