PARENT REQUIREMENTS:

Communicate with at least one of your child’s teachers every day. Ask questions and give input about the experiences your child is having. Make sure you have contact with each teacher in the classroom every week. Get to know them and allow them to get to know you.


Read materials that are sent home and pay attention to notices that are posted around the center. Each classroom has a parent bulletin board, and boards showing the children’s artwork and projects. There are information boards in the hall and at the front desk.  Successful students always have a parent that is involved in the programs offered by the school and eagerly participates. Show your child by your actions that his/her education is important to you. Start participating now while your child is in preschool; show him/her how much you care.

  • Help the teacher by putting up theme boards in the classroom

  • Chaperone on field trips

  • Read stories or storyboard with pictures

  • Invite parents to monthly performance to assist the teacher

  • Assist during social events that include the entire family (picnics, family video night, center fair, holiday/special events).

 

Parents and teachers can communicate at arrival and departure by speaking to their child’s teacher prior to the beginning of the teacher’s lesson.  If the teacher is involved with the children, parents are asked to speak to the Director and leave a message for the teacher who will call the parent to follow up on the concern.  During arrival parents in the Infant and Toddler room are given a daily report about their child.  The teachers in all the classrooms will inform the parents about their child’s day.  We encourage parents to talk to the teachers daily to share their goals, expectations of the child.
