Home-School Connection

Home-School Connection: From the Director

We are committed to creating a strong home and center connection by developing a process of open, honest communication with you regarding your child's development and experience at the center. This includes a continual exchange of information between you and our center staff and management. Communication will include Daily Experience Sheets and Journals, Notice Boards, Email, Mailboxes, and Partnership Groups. Parenting seminars, curriculum nights, special events, family breakfasts, potluck dinners, and family support group meetings may be held throughout the year.
