Hillside Nursery School

Welcome to our website

Key Worker

Attachment relationships form throughout life and are the basis upon which children begin to feel safe and secure. The first attachment relationship with a primary care giver is the 'blue print' for attachment relationships which form in the future. At Nursery each child will be assigned a Key Worker. The Key Worker system provides the opportunity for the child to develop one of their attachment relationships. This relationship provides a 'secure base' from which they can explore and a 'safe haven' to return to in times of needing reassurance or a recharge of the emotional batteries.


At Hillside we recognise that the most effective relationship is developed when Key Workers and parents/carers work closely together. This develops a sense of safety and security which underpins the foundations for children to develop and learn successfully.
