Some of a child’s most IMPORTANT cognitive development happens during their preschool years. By taking an ACTIVE ROLE in the early childhood education process, parents can help ensure that their child has all the SUPPORT they need to DEVELOP to their full potential. PARENT INVOLVEMENT helps extend teaching outside the classroom, creates a more POSITIVE EXPERIENCE for children and helps children PERFORM BETTER when they are in school. Parents who are in tune with what is happening in their child’s preschool classroom or child care facility are better able to establish a CONNECTION between what is learned at school and what takes place in the home.
We aim to celebrate all parent-child relationships by providing occasions that honor all of the various family relations. All of the events below are held after 4:00 pm (with the exception of Muffins with Mom, Donuts with Dad, and Grahams with Grandparents). Of course, all events are optional. We hold the following events each year as a way to celebrate family and family-school connections.
FEBRUARY Valentine's Day Dance
MARCH National Reading Month Family Reading Night
APRIL Family Spring Carnival
MAY Muffins with Mom & Parent-Teacher Conferences
JUNE Donuts with Dad
JULY Family Field Day
SEPTEMBER Grahams with Grandparents
OCTOBER Fall Harvest Family Festival
NOVEMBER Parent-Teacher Conferences
DECEMBER Family Holiday Celebration
Our teachers utilize our proprietary assessment tools (COR, HiMama, and ASQ) to evaluate how children are meeting learning objectives. Development and learning reports are reviewed with parents twice a year at Parent-Teacher Conferences to celebrate children's achievements and establish future goals.
Early morning and end-of-day chats are encouraged between parents and teachers. We also communicate throughout the day with parents via our HiMama app. This daily dialogue is the perfect opportunity to share valuable information regarding the day's events, goals for the week, and the overall well-being of your child.
