March Parent Session

We would like to say a great big thank you to our parents/carers for attending our Parents Session on Wednesday 16th March 2016. It was enjoyed by everyone. Here is what our parents/carers thought of the Session:

  • Good time for it (2:30pm)
  • 1:1 with keyworker might be good
  • I like other family members being involved
  • Good to speak to staff
  • Good to see what Lilly does
  • Great to see the folder (hard copy is excellent) and see just how much Cara has been doing. I can’t believe she looks so happy in ALL the pictures! Where are the ones when she’s in a strop?
  • Loved to see Lily play with all different toys, loved the play dough and staff were good to talk to.
