Home-School Connection

Home-School Connection: From the Director

Parents are kept up to date on school activities through weekly written communication, posted reminders, Facebook and teacher calls. Parent and teacher conferences are offered in the Spring. Parents are welcome at school anytime and there are many opportunities for parent involvement.


Separation is Handled through:

  • Pre-entry meetings with parents at school
  • Extra staff dedicated to handle separation

Handling Separation: From the Director

Parents and children will have an opportunity to meet the teacher and see the school the week before school starts. School staff is sensitive to each child's needs and works with parents to promote a positive school experience. Parents are welcome in the classroom and schedules are flexible if needed to help children adjust to school.
