Family – Center Communication
The Center is designed to provide high quality child care. An important and necessary ingredient in creating quality child care is parent involvement. We believe parents are the most significant adults in a child’s life.
We strive to create mutual respect between parents and the Center staff, a partnership for the benefit of the child. Our doors will be open to parents at all times. Each family will be assigned a Center mailbox upon enrollment, most Center communications will be distributed through this mechanism. There is also a message component to the family check-in system. Teachers may leave important messages on the touch-screen system.
During the year, the Center will host multiple events that all parents will be encouraged to participate in. An annual Pumpkin Walk, Valentine’s Breakfast and other special programming are ways we use to encourage communication and establish a relationship between a child’s family life and his/her school.
A monthly newsletter will be published. The purpose of the newsletter is to serve as a network for staff and parents to exchange ideas, experiences and needs. It highlights children’s activities by age group, new starts, graduates, staff news and parent and Center activities.
Parent – Staff Communication
As stated above, we believe parents are the most significant adults in a child’s life. We strive to create mutual respect between parents and the Center staff; a partnership for the benefit of the child. Our doors are open to parents at all times and staff is expected to conduct themselves in a professional manner on all occasions. During the year, the Center will host multiple events that parents will be encouraged to participate in and most staff will be asked to participate in and/or attend.
Parents are encouraged to visit the classroom and speak with the teacher(s) as often as possible. Staff will make every effort to keep normal daily interactions with parents on a positive and even note. We also hold Parent C.A.R.E. (Cooperation Achieves Rewarding Education) nights for parents to come in and visit with our staff about their child’s development and any questions or concerns they may have.
