The mission of The Childrenâ€™s School is to inspire each child's unique potential and desire for life-long learning through a strong academic, social and environmental curriculum.
The home-school-connection starts over the summer when our teachers make a home visit to the student's home. Next, the students are invited to sneak-a-peek of the classroom, prior to the first day of school, to check out the environment with their family. Once the school year starts, daily messages about what happened in the classroom are left for parents to view and ask their children about, and the teachers check in with parents at pick-up. Additionally, weekly emails are sent to all parents outlining the curriculum of the past week and any upcoming events. The home-school-connection is incredibly important for the success of all students, and something we take pride in.
