Parental Partnerships

Tracey Devlin (Lead Educator for Family Support & Inclusion) says…

‘We are committed to enhancing lives, raising aspirations and creating opportunities for all our children and families.  To do this we value each child with their own needs and interests and value our families and wider community, creating a diverse environment with tolerance and understanding towards each other’

All of us need support at different times. Our Lead Educator for Family Support helps children to access the support they need, when they need it, which in turn helps them with the skills they will need for the future.

Family is central to the Growing Places culture

We encourage a three way collaboration between parents children and educators to develop:

  • Consistency in children learning experiences through shared opportunities for creative investigations supported by motivated knowledgeable educator’s.
  • Shared mutual respect and understanding.
  • A feeling of ownership by all involved.


  • provide the highest quality of care and education for your child
  • provide safe, engaging facilities within each setting
  • deliver a childcare service that is flexible and affordable
  • work hard to meet the individual needs of ALL children and their families
  • ensure that families benefit from unlimited half-rate holidays
  • provide healthy, hot meals for those attending during lunch sessions in both nursery and holiday club settings
  • charge competitive fees that enable us to meet all costs without profit
Additionally, COMMUNITY CHILDCARE CENTRES (Growing Places) is very proud to provide: FREE parent workshops and additional events for our families and local community; families with opportunities to enjoy local camping trips, made fully inclusive for all children. We provide all tents and camping equipment and the experiences are fully staffed by our team members throughout the time.

“participation is an educational strategy that characterises our way of being and teaching. Participation of the children, the teachers and the families, not only by taking part in something but being part of it, it’s essence, part of a common identity”.
