Parent Engagement and Learning


The Preschool staff provides guidance and resources to parents in their efforts to better support their children and to encourage a life- long love of learning including programs such as:

  • Family Reading  - Encouraging parents to read to their children at home (100 books per school year). The Preschool offers developmentally appropriate books to families for use in their home.

  • Volunteering - Parents are required to volunteer at the preschool each month by reading to the children, serving meals, and helping with outdoor activities.

  • Parent group meetings - Community facilitators and staff discuss nutrition and other healthy practices, brain research information, and developmentally appropriate practices in an interactive environment.

  • Individualized parent guidance -  Teachers meet with families both at home and at the Preschool to offer complimentary enrichment materials for children who need additional assistance

  • Access to resources -  When necessary, Preschool staff can offer referrals to community agencies  to address children's developmental or behavioral needs and work with the parents and agencies to ensure appropriate followup.
