Parenting Power

 

Parenting is a never-ending process, so we ask that you share your experience and knowledge in the classroom with you child and his/her teachers. We encourage parent participation to continue with the development of the child and to increase the knowledge of the parent while your child is in our care. Parents are strongly encouraged to participate in the Center Parent Teacher Association. Parent teacher’s conferences are held twice a year. Parents are encouraged to attend these conferences to not only understand what your child is learning in class but to provide the teachers with incite on your child and what your goals are for your child. Parents are asked to provide a change of clothing and to inform us as soon as there is a change in their work or cell phone number. If you work at a job that does not allow you to receive personal phone, please give us a number of a person who would be authorized to pick your child up in case of an emergency.

We are a smoke free facility and do not allow smoking in or near the building. We do not allow drugs or alcohol in the building. If we suspect that you may not be capable of transporting your child because of being intocated, we will notify the authorities.

Pets are only allowed for show and tell and must not be on the health dept. list of animals that are not permitted in child care.

We have an open door policy and parents are welcome at all times to participate in center activities, field trips, etc. Volunteers are always needed and greatly appreciated. Just let us know if you would like to volunteer!

Parent Communication

We have several methods of communicating with our families. Infant toddlers parents receive a daily report showing how much the child ate, nap times and diaper changes. Infant parents also have an additional handbook just for infant classes that address usage and storage of formula and breast milk.

Other forms of communication are the use of our web site that houses a parent newsletter and classroom newsletters. Our older classes use a classroom DoJo. And the best way is always face to face communication. Children participating in the NCPK classes also have an additional handbook outlining the responsibilities of that program.
