Parent/Family Involvement

Our image of the child is rich in potential, strong, powerful, competent and, most of all connected to adults and other children.

-Loris Malaguzzi founder of Reggio Emilia approach

Parent and family involvement is crucial to the success of our program. Parents can be involved in their child's education in a variety of ways: observing and volunteering in the classroom, assisting with special projects of interest to project studies, serving as an "expert" when children/teachers have questions on a particular topic or question, helping with at-home volunteering, attending Family Nights and meetings to name a few. 

Our Parent Teacher Alliance (PTA) meets once a month to collaborate on all school endeavors, book/article discussions, and fundraising. Childcare is provided at the PTA meetings for our preschool-5th grade families.
