At Oxhey, we see parents as a child’s first and most important teacher. Collaborating with you is a core part of our approach to education. We always share information in a way that enhances children's growth and wellbeing.
Research shows that children develop through rich interactions with skilled adults. So our practitioners spend their time in session engaging and staying present with your child. They’re trained to seize teachable moments, model new skills and encourage safe risks. This way, your child builds strong relationships and gets plenty of chances to learn.
Then, when practitioners are out of session, they record and share quality information with you so you have oversight and can reinforce learning at home.
