Parent Involvement
Parents are always welcome to visit their children at the Center and join their daily activities. The children's experience is greatly enhanced when parents participate in special classroom activities, particularly those in which families can share their diverse ethnic, cultural, and religious traditions and history. In fact, we ask families to provide information about their ethnic, cultural, and religious beliefs so we can incorporate our families’ heritages into our curriculum. We suggest reading a story, helping with a craft or a cooking project, singing songs, sharing a dance, or showing pictures. We especially encourage you to join their children for lunch and special events. Our infant program welcomes mothers to come nurse or visit their baby during the day.

In addition, parents are asked to support the Center by participating in fundraising events, the proceeds of which help offset tuition costs. You’re also welcome to join us on field trips. Periodically, the Center coordinates special events for families to get to know each other.

Parents are invited to run for a seat on the Board of Directors. As a member of the Board, you’ll have direct input into setting policies, approving the annual budget, raising extra funds to support the operating budget, and participating in short- and long-term planning for the Center.
