The main purpose of a key person system is to create a "family" atmosphere. When assigning key people we take into account existing staff-family relationships, the sessions that the child attends, the hours the team member works and the compatibility between the child, parent/carer and the team member.


What does the Key Person role mean:

For the baby or young child

The key person makes sure that, within the day-to-day demands of the setting, each child for whom they have special responsibility feels individual, cherished and thought about by someone in particular while they are away from home.


For the parents and close carers at home











The key person ensures they have the opportunity to build a personal relationship with individual children rather than all children as a group in the setting. The benefits are likely to be peace of mind for parents, and the possibility for them to build a partnership with professional staff who may share with them the pleasures and stresses of child rearing. It provides an opportunity for them to liaise with someone else who loves their child.


For the key person

The key person approach is intense, involving hard work and a big professional and emotional commitment. However, the benefits of being and becoming a key person are that you really matter to a child and to their family. You are likely to have a powerful impact on the child’s well-being, their mental health, and their opportunities to think and learn. These powers and responsibilities will bring feelings of pleasure and pain, the joys and relief of partings and reunions and the satisfactions and anxieties of being the key person in a child’s formative early years.


The key person approach does not mean that attachments with parents will be undermined. In fact, this works the other way round: attachments at home and in the early years setting can support each other.


The key person approach does not mean that the key person should be with their key children all the time. No parent does that and children need, and benefit from, interactions with other adults and children in the early years setting.

The key person approach does not mean that children are not allowed to make close relationships with other adults. Children often choose who they want to be attached to and these choices should be respected.
