It can be scary for parents to choose a nursery. Understandably, they will seek reassurance that you embrace and encourage all that makes their child unique – this is done by collecting and using the details shared in the Early Years ‘all about me’ Child Profile.

The early years ‘all about me’ documents are given to parents for a quick insight into the child’s personality and life at home, giving a good starting point for building a strong key worker relationship.

Too often, parents are given paper forms to manually fill out during the first stay-and-play session. Catching parents in a moment of anxiety and taking their attention away from being present with their child during an important nursery milestone.

Asking parents to fill in paper forms that are the ‘first touch’ for nursery-home relationships is ineffective – we can do better than that!

As we know, children’s likes and dislikes change like the weather. The hallmark of an effective EYFS ‘all about me’ Child Profile is being able to keep up with the changing interests whilst having access to personalised child information.

Blossom’s nursery management software platform has the best early years ‘all about me’ information gathering process about town. It is easy to use, detailed and interactive with the parents. Don’t believe us? Try Blossom for yourself!

Accessible emergency contact details

On Blossom’s Child Profile, emergency contact details are accessible. Including multiple family contacts, nursery practitioners save valuable time in case of an emergency by knowing who to contact and when.
