Open Door Policy
Any parent is welcomed to visit your preschooler at any time during his or her class. All doors remain locked while preschool is in session for security purposes, knock and/or call to enter.
We keep parents informed of their children’s daily activities in several ways. Most of the products that are produced (paintings, writing, and arts & crafts) are sent home the day they were created. A weekly newsletter will be sent home describing the next weeks activities. Our facebook page gives reminders and updates. www.facebook.com/higherlearningpreschool
We hold parent/teacher conferences in the Fall and Year End to discuss children’s growth and development and to set goals for learning. Besides these planned conferences, parents are invited to request a conference any time they wish to speak privately with the director and or teacher.
