Events at FountNursery
At FountNursery, we pride ourselves on being committed to parent partnerships and hosting a variety of events for parents to come into the nursery and get involved with. Stay and play sessions, seasonal celebrations such as Mothers/Fathers’ Day, Easter and Christmas activities and external events are hugely popular.
It’s important to us that parents feel welcomed, involved and included in their child’s time at nursery. Using the calendar below, you can find what is planned over the coming months. If you’d like to know more about an event, please do not hesitate to contact our Management Team.

We invite parents to come into the nursery to do activities with the children. Activities can include, but are not limited to:
– circle time
– cooking activities
– stay & play talk time
These activities take place once a month (per room) and parents can book a visit by contacting Management.
It’s of paramount importance that staff and Management work in partnership with parents/carers; it is central to the EYFS framework the nursery follows. Communicating with parents about early experiences helps our staff plan for effective learning and supports parents in continuing with learning development at home.
Contributions – of any kind – are welcomed by FountNursery; this could be sharing interests/information about background/cultures, taking part in Parents Evening, opening up discussions about child development. It all provides the opportunity for parents to learn about what the children are being taught.
At FountNursery, we want to include ALL parents; parents who live apart from their children, working parents, grandparents and so on. Staff and Management will implement different strategies as necessary to ensure nobody is left out. Information provided will always be accessible.
Engaging parents/carers in their children’s early learning is pivotal to what makes us a successful setting.
We use Famly, an app parents are invited to join, to communicate effectively with parents regarding important messages on a daily basis, and also issue monthly newsletters featuring key information using Mailchimp; parents are added to the subscriber list when their child starts at FountNursery.
