Parent Involvement

How much or how little?

Parent involvement to suit your needs

Parent Helper Guidelines
  • Participate in all activities
  • Follow guidelines and tone set by the teacher and if you are not sure ASK!
  • Leave discipline to the teachers.
  • Treat each child with respect and accept his/her work enthusiastically.
  • Assist in regular routines: snack, cleanup, circle time, and play.
  • When near the art area, assist with smocks and hand washing.
  •  Enjoy yourself!

Frequently asked questions:

  • Can I spend time in my child's classroom?

Absolutely!  A sign-up sheet is posted in each classroom and online for parents to choose the day(s) they would like to come in as a parent helper.

  • What if someone else in my family would like to be a classroom helper?

Anyone from the child's family can be a volunteer - mom, dad, grandparent, nanny. 

  • What if I work and have a hard time coming in to the classroom? 

If you find that it is truly difficult to meet this expectation, you simply need to talk to us.  There are other ways that parents can help the school - tally up a book order, make play dough for the class, bring in some snack supplies, etc.
