Parent Communication



There are four newsletters distributed throughout the year. A newsletter will keep you up-to-date on all learning programs and curricular activities at our day care.

Parent-Teacher Conferences

Our competent and dedicated staff is well aware of those important early school years. One of our most important priorities is good communication between parents and school. To enable parents and teachers to exchange valuable information pertaining to your child’s intellectual, social, and emotional development, we schedule parent- teacher conferences in the beginning of the school year and in the spring. You will receive a designated time before your child’s conference.

Progress Reports

Progress reports are given regarding toilet training, behavior, and educational achievements. If there is any difficulty with your child, you will be notified immediately. All communication is documented and placed in your child’s file.

Parents as Speakers

Parents are invited to share knowledge and talents with our children. Parents whose occupations coincide with an aspect of community service, we would be honored to have you come in and demonstrate your talents. Examples include: police officers, doctors, fire fighters, mail carriers, nurses, dentists, veterinarians, musicians, etc.
