Home-School Connection

Home-School Connection: From the Director

We have a Parent Orientation to share goals and vision with parents. Before school begins we hold an Open House where scholars can meet their teacher before school begins. During Open House scholars complete a craft activity and get familiar with their classroom and teacher.


Separation is Handled through:

  • Pre-entry meetings with parents at school

Handling Separation: From the Director

With love and encouragement our scholars adjust quickly. We encourage parent interaction and involvement at the begining and througout the school year.
