Communications with Families

Because of our small, intimate atmosphere, teachers have the opportunity to share information informally with parents or caregivers every day.
We also provide:

  • Formal conferences in the fall and spring
  • Monthly newsletters
  • Facebook updates
  • Opportunities for parental involvement


Getting to Know Your Child

As preschool teachers, we understand that children can be hesitant to start a new preschool program.  A special feature of our preschool is that our staff meets students in their homes the week before the school year begins.  This allows your child to meet our preschool staff in person in a familiar setting.
