We believe that parents are their child's first and best teachers!

 

 

Research shows a strong connection between parent involvement and children’s academic success. In fact studies have shown that the earlier in a child’s educational process parent involvement begins, the more powerful the impact (Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory, School Improvement Research Series).

 

      We would love to have you involved in our program!

 

Family Kindergarten Readiness Events

In addition to our Born Learning Academy, each year we have Family Kindergarten Readiness Nights throughout the year. Each event will focus on an area of development to help parents prepare their children for kindergarten.  There is an opportunity for parents, teachers, and preschool students to spend quality time together.


Home Visits

Each preschooler will be visited at home by his/her preschool teacher twice during the school year. Teachers will schedule a home visit each semester to discuss your child’s progress and to share your child’s preschool experiences.


Volunteering in your child’s classroom

Volunteers are welcome and needed to spend time in the classroom or work at home by preparing classroom activities...Your help will be greatly appreciated!

Learning at Home

Parents: You are your child's first and best teacher! What you show them is important to you will be important to them. Preschool children learn best by doing-- it is important for them to have opportunities for talking, singing, reading, writing, and playing at home with you.
