Parent Alliance

As a parent member of Cradle to Crayon, a parent automatically becomes a member of the Parents’ Alliance. 

Our school recognises parents as the first and most important educators of their children, thereby making staff members co-workers with parents in providing care and education for them. Ways in which you, as a parent, can take part in making the school a welcoming and stimulating place for the children and other parents are: 

  • Exchanging knowledge about your child’s needs, interests and progress with the staff
  • Supporting your child’s learning at home
  • Helping at sessions of the school
  • Sharing your own special interests with the children
  • Communicating observations and expectations to the school
  • Attending school functions and events
  • Joining in community activities in which the school takes part
  • Building a friendship with other parents

The school has a dated rota which parents can sign if you would like to help at a particular session within the school day. Helping at sessions enable you to see what the day-to-day life of the school is like and join in helping the children to get the best out of their activities.
