Parent Partnership

Sandcastles recognises that parent and/or carers are the child’s first and main educators.  Building strong parent partnerships is fundamental in the care and education of children within Early Years.  Sandcastles aims to commence this partnership from the first enquiry made ensuring a courteous, professional, transparent approach at every stage.
