The success of our program is based on establishing a partnership between our families and the center staff. Frequent and open communication between family members and teachers will help your child have a positive early learning experience. Don’t hesitate to come in and visit your child at any time. Feel free to talk to any member of the teaching or management team to exchange observations and opinions.
We utilize many different tools to keep you informed about what is happening with your child. Below is a description of the typical communication tools we are using at the center:
Families are able to receive classroom and center updates, newsletters and lesson plans, room specific information, and emergency announcements through the website and emails.
Newsletters containing a summary of classroom activities and special moments of the week are available electronically as well as outside the classrooms.
Family Information Board:
Outside of each classroom and in the center lobby you will find a board specifically assigned to provide families with more detailed information. The Family Information Board includes menus, lesson plans, daily schedules, calendar of events, newsletters and special announcements.
Throughout the year, our teachers observe and assess the progress of each child’s development. The observations are captured on our Developmental Assessment Tool specifically designed for each age group.
Twice yearly, or by request, we offer conferences to all families at our center to discuss observations of your child’s developmental progress and set goals for the upcoming months.
A wealth of information is available on parenting topics such as dealing with challenging behavior, health and nutrition, and family activities.
Family participation is a very important part of our program. Your involvement is an integral part of the teamwork necessary to provide the best education and experiences possible for your child. Our Helping Hands Program is designed to encourage families to volunteer time, talents and skills in a number of ways. You may choose to chaperone on fieldtrips, share a special story during circle time, implement a theme related activity; or support center operations through handyman tasks and IT applications.
