Quality Care When You're Not There...


Parent/Guardian Involvement

Throughout the year, teachers will meet with Parents/guardians to review their child's progress through meetings at the center. The conferences will be scheduled at the convenience of the family. Additionally, Parents/Guardians will receive weekly information regarding their child's progress and development. We encourage Parent's/Guardians to visit and participate in our program in any way that their schedule allows.

We also put together 4 pot luck dinners through out the year. This gives our families the opportunity to get together, meet and greet and exchange phone numbers for play dates at their homes.

In addition we have between 4-6 parent's night out each year! These are done so parents can go enjoy a night out with one another knowing your children are being well taken care of. All sibling are also welcome to join! We start at 5:30 and finish at 9pm with the children ending the night on their mats for a movie! We do not have television worked into our curriculum so this is a nice bonus for the kids!
