How We Work

worker-smallEvery family has a Family Worker. They are there to help you meet other people and make friends.

They can also signpost you to where to go for help with education, day care, employment, benefits, debt, housing, and employment and advise you on how and where to get support with a whole range of other issues such as domestic violence, alcohol and drug problems.

Every child at St Philip’s Nursery School Nursery School and Cashmore Early Years Centre has a Key Person. The Key Person gets to know your child really well. They work closely with a Family Worker at Barton Hill. In this way you get support from people who know you, care about the welfare of your children and want to help you as a family.

Cashmoore - 63The Key Person and the Family Worker form a partnership with your child (or children) and you. Working together in this way means you know who to go to for support, find out how your child is progressing at nursery and you don’t have to keep telling your story to lots of people in order to get the help that you need.
