Home-School Connection

Home-School Connection: From the Director

I personally speak to each parent at drop-off and pick-up time. In addition I am always available by phone or email. And a monthly newsletter shares program news.


Separation is Handled through:

  • Pre-entry meetings with parents at school
  • Parents in classroom early on
