Key Person

At Hillside Playcare we realise the importance of each child having a Key Person who is “special” to them. Time is spent by management and practitioners to select the appropriate member of staff for this task.

‘Each child must be assigned a key person. Their role is to help ensure that every child’s care is tailored to meet their individual needs.’
EYFS Statutory Framework (DFE April 2017)

A key person is assigned to a child when they first register with us. As part of the settling in process we offer a home visit and the child’s key person will join the Manager or Deputy on this visit.
