Stay & Play

Studies indicate that pre-schoolers do better if their parents or carers are actively involved with their pre-school.

Your insights into your child are invaluable in helping the pre-school team tailor their care and activities to suit your child’s individual needs. Getting to know the routines, activities, staff and other children at your child’s pre-school helps you to support your child’s development and learning at home and if you feel at home at pre-school, it’s more likely your child will too.

We enable parental involvement by inviting you to “Stay and Play” with your child. These sessions allow:

  • You to see your child interacting in an environment and with children who may be unfamiliar to you.
  • You to share any special skills or experiences you may have.
  • All the children to benefit from learning from a diverse group of parents and carers.
  • An increased adult child ratio.
  • Everyone to share in the fun.

“Stay and Play is a valuable part of my child’s experience at pre-school. We both benefit from spending precious time together in a stimulating environment where my child is happy and confident. I benefit from learning what my child gets up to when I’m not there and I enjoy getting to know the other children in my child’s pre-school group. I have observed interesting patterns of behaviour from the children during ‘stay and play’ which I would not otherwise have learnt. I think that ‘stay and play’ is a great way to build knowledge and understanding of the early years environment.”

L. Redmond, parent.
