Engaged Parents

At the Wigwam it is important to us that parents feel part of the setting and as such we engage with you in a number of ways to support your child’s learning and development.


We regularly hold events in the Nursery and encourage all parents to come along and join us. These include events to celebrate festivals such as Diwali, Eidand Christmas. Along with special events for Mothers and Father’s Day. Not forgetting the ever-popular annual sports day which includes a picnic tea at the local park.

Stay and Play

We operate an open-door policy at the Wigwam and encourage our parents to come and spend time in the setting with the children. This could be to share a skill or hobby, to talk to the children about your job or even just to read a story with them.

Focus Week

At the Wigwam we plan for each of the children’s learning and development individually, and having parents involved in the process is vital for a successful focus week. We share reports on your child’s learning termly and ask for your input into the planning and activities. During the focus week you will be able to view what your child has been learning through our Interactive Learning Diary (ILD). The ILD also allows you to share with us what you have been up to at home by uploading your own observations. Finally, at the end of the focus week you will have the opportunity to sit down with your child’s key worker to discuss your child’s learning, development and help us plan their next steps.
