Teddy Bears Pre-school is keen to involve parents and carers.

Research shows that children learn better when their parents are involved. As well as chatting with your child’s keyperson or the pre-school’s supervisor, there are several ways in which parents and carers can be involved – the parent helper rota, the committee, fundraising, and sharing interests. These are also good ways in which you can meet other staff and parents.


Our Parent Helper Rota system involves all parents in helping in the group on a regular basis. This also gives you the opportunity to see your child interacting within the pre-school setting and to talk to your child’s key person in depth.

Parents are requested to do at least two rota duties per term per child, although there are some circumstances where exceptions are made.  A fee is charged if parents are unable to do the required duty.
