LPSW believe that in order to enhance the development, care and education of our children it is essential that there are strong and effective working partnerships with our families, parents.
It is the policy of Llangyfelach Primary Wraparound to:
Encourage and welcome parents’/carers’ involvement in the day-to-day running of this provision.
Provide high quality day care that enhances the development, care and education of pre-school children in a safe and stimulating environment, where they learn through play in partnership with parents/carers.
Welcome parents/carers who want to become directly involved in the activities of the provision and provide opportunities to do so.
We do this by:
Encouraging parents/carers to visit us with their child before registering.
