Parent Participation Policy We welcome parents to visit their child's classroom to participate in a special project, share a special talent or read a special book. We also welcome parents to share information about different cultures and occupations. We believe that ongoing communication with our families is important. We encourage parents to contact us throughout the year with any questions regarding our program or your child.
Parent Conferences Parent Conferences are held twice a year. The conferences are a wonderful opportunity for teachers to share information about your child's progress in all developmental areas. This is also a time to become better acquainted with our curriculum and to ask any questions regarding your child or our program.
Toileting Children still in the process of toilet training will be encouraged to do so in a positive and supportive manner. Training will be done in conjunction with parents in a manner that is consistent with the child's physical and emotional abilities. Children requiring diapers or pull-ups must provide the school with diapers and wipes that will be kept in the diapering area at school. These items will only be used by your child.
Lunch and snacks Due to various food allergies, we ask that you provide your child with 1-2 healthy snacks per day along with a lunch. We are happy to heat food items if necessary. We encourage parents to provide nutritious lunches; eliminating foods that contains excess sugar.
Severe Weather School closings may be necessary in the event of inclement weather that could jeopardize the safety of our families and staff.
Birthday Celebrations Each child will be celebrated in or around their special day by wearing (if they choose to do so) a special birthday crown made especially for your child by his or her teacher. The child will also have their body traced on a large piece of paper to be colored and decorated by your child and his/her classmates.
