At Giggles we believe working with parents is of paramount importance to children’s learning and development. We take pride in the excellent relationships we have with parents and the collaborative approach we promote.
At Giggles we recognise the parent as the child’s first educator, parents know their child best, we value this and will work in partnership with the parent to ensure we have all the current and relevant information to settle your child and build on their learning and development, achieving the best outcomes. We communicate effectively with parents, involving them in their child's learning and development journey.
Giggles host annual parents evenings where parents and carers are invited into nursery to meet with their child's key worker, discuss their child's progress and view their online developmental journal. Parents evening is also an opportunity for parents to get to know each other.
Towards the end of each term, key workers will also complete a parent consultation. Informing parents of their child's achievements in that term and their next steps moving forward. Key workers also use this as an opportunity to offer any advise and support to parents and to update their key child's likes and interests from home.
Giggles use the number 1 nursery software system called Famly. Famly provides all parents / carers with live updates throughout your child's day. Here you will be able to view photos and videos of your child, development updates, personal care records, food diaries, communicate with staff and view all the exciting activities your child takes part in during the day. You can download the famly app using the link below.

What our parents say
I can only start by just saying a massive thank you to the management team and wonderful staff at Giggles. Our baby girl started at this nursery just after she turned one and it was a difficult choice given the unprecedented situation in the world but we cannot be more happy with the level of care and attention these wonderful people have for our daughter. It is always hard to leave your child with someone, however this transition could not have been made easier for us. They helped us in every possible way and boy did they deliver. Not only have they looked after my daughter at nursery, they gave us amazing advice on how to look after our daughter while she’s at home. I honestly cannot recommend this nursery more, I cannot imagine that anywhere else can look after your little one as good as these guys. We will always be ever so grateful for the care and love they provide to our baby girl. Thank you.
