We know that choosing a preschool for your child is a big decision, and the idea of missing out on moments during his or her day can be overwhelming at times. Our teachers are committed to the development and best interests of their students and maintaining an open line of communication with their parents helps to ensure the child’s needs are being met. That is why our teachers make time for parent communications and do their part to keep families informed about their child’s school day.
Some of the ways we like to communicate with parents:
Reserved for children in our infant, ones and twos classes, these forms outline a child’s overall mood, diaper/potty and nap schedule, and lunch appetite and are sent home in backpacks every day.
Each teaching team sends school families a wrap-up email to provide curriculum highlights. Infant, ones and twos send this email monthly and threes, pre-kindergarten and kindergarten teachers send weekly wrap-up emails. Some teachers create private social media channels for their class for quick photo sharing.
Parent-teacher conferences are held in the fall and spring to discuss each child’s development in areas such as gross motor, fine motor, cognitive and problem solving, language and literacy, and social and emotional.
Other school communications to expect:
All school families receive Building Bridges each month school is in session. The content is curated by the school director in partnership with PTO volunteers.
PTO leadership invites all families to participate in fellowship events like the school’s annual Fall Festival, Trike-a-Thon and adult-only fundraiser, Big Saints Bash. Parents are also welcome to serve in a range of volunteer capacities for these and other events as well as classroom positions. All opportunities are typically communicated via email and/or posted in classrooms.
Stand alone email communications such as school updates, reminders and requests are sent from the director on an as needed basis.
