“It is becoming increasingly clear through research on the brain, as well as in other areas of study, that childhood needs play. Play acts as a forward feed mechanism into courageous, creative, rigorous thinking in adulthood.” ~ Tina Bruce (Professor, LondonMetropolitan University)
Parents are provided with the opportunity to see their child interact with other children via a secure internet based camera. Parents are provided with a user name and password to view their child’s classroom and assigned playground.
We have an “open-door” policy and provide a variety of center-wide events to involve parents in their child(ren)’s early educational experiences. We believe parent involvement at our school is pivotal to a child’s academic future successes.
We recognize that parents are their child's first teachers. Children cultivate an appreciation for learning when
parents are involved in their educational program. The primary bridge between home and school is critical.
For that reason, we provide a variety of center-wide events to involve parents in their children’s early
educational experiences. By doing so, parents have perspectives on their children and can provide teachers
with valuable information; helping teachers to design activities to better meet children’s needs. In addition
parent involvement at home and in school promotes better student achievement. We invite all parents to get
involved at the Little Heroes and begin a habit of participation in their child’s schools. Parents can become
- Keeping up to date by reading all notices for parents.
- Assisting teachers on special school projects. (i.e. cutting, pasting)
- Participation during classroom activities
- Participation during fund-raisers
- Participation during special events
- Parent Communication
Parent/teacher conferences are scheduled twice a year. We encourage all parents to participate in a conference even
if they speak to their child’s teacher every day. The purpose of conducting parent/teacher conference is to allow time
for listening and communicating openly. The conferences are vital in providing parents insight into their child’s
development. This is an opportunity for both teacher and parent to gain new perspectives on the child as a whole.
The goal is to assist the child in advancing socially and academically. To create a strong bond between families and our
Program, at least two annual teacher/parent conferences are held where teacher observations are shared with parents.
