Home-School Connection

Home-School Connection: From the Director

Once a year there is a parent/teacher conference and every two months report cards are distributed.

Separation

Separation is Handled through:

  • Home visits by teachers
  • Parents in classroom early on
  • Abbreviated schedule at start of school year

Handling Separation: From the Director

At the beginning of the school year, for two weeks there are shorter hours. By the third week most children are ready to be by themselves. We contemplate specific situations.
