Family Involvement

Families are valued for their family traditions, their commitment to work, home and community, for their dreams for their children and for their unique individuality, their commitment to high quality early education and their commitment to a nurturing environment for their children.

Staff greet each parent daily and encourage their involvement in the program through parent/child activities, field trips, visits, contributions to project work, their observations of child progress, newsletter information, the daily journal and parent/teacher conferences.

Parents are regarded as a child’s first teacher and therefore a partner with teachers in their child’s development. Parents and family are welcome to visit the center at any time. If a parent wants to visit during a child’s adjustment period and the staff feel the visit may be hard on the child, we will communicate our concerns and see if we can come to a mutually agreeable time before parental visits take place.
