At Longfellow Preschool, children, teachers, parents, and the College community come together to form an interactive and collaborative union. Home and school collaboration is an important component of the total education of a young child. An open door policy prevails at Longfellow Preschool. Parents are always welcome to join the children's preschool day - sharing a story, a recipe, a holiday tradition, or participating in curriculum planning. The Parent Planning Committee, a volunteer group of parents interested in organizing activities that build and support the Longfellow community, is formed each year. Parental support is valued, from organizing community service projects, volunteering for a classroom activity, or supporting a fundraising endeavor. Through parents, grandparents, and other family members, we widen our world and foster an appreciation for the diverse cultures that our children will experience.
