Parent Involvement

Parents are the first and most lasting influence upon how a child feels about herself / himself. Childcare is a shared process, and we encourage you to take part in the day-to-day activities of the Center; meals, field trips and class visits. We would like you to share your ideas, traditions, and recipes and even yourself or any other way that you would enjoy. Parents are an important piece of our community and are welcome in the Center and classroom at any time. This enriches our program and is a great source of pride for your child. Remember, however, that some children may have a more difficult time accepting the arrival and departure of parents at times other then the normal routine. If a visit from a parent causes the child to become upset, the Director may ask the parent to take the child with them.

As your child will be spending a major portion of his / her day at the in Center, we want to make sure that parents are kept informed of all that is happening both in our classrooms and the Center. Children have a folder located in their classroom. From time to time you will receive various classroom notices, memos, agendas, and other information pertaining to the Center’s operations, educational programs or special events. Please check your child’s folder daily. On some occasions, especially important information may be sent via postal service or email. Notices are also posted in each classroom and Center notices are posted in the foyer.
