Handling Separation: From the Director

We do not limit the scenarios we will try to support a child's sense of comfort with separating from a parent. While we believe that the best scenario is for the parent to say goodbye and leave, that doesn't work for every child. We have temporarily shortend school days, allowed a parent to be in the class. In short we try to support what is best for child and parent to create a positive atmosphere of trust and confidence between school and our families.
