Consistency and routine creates comfort for children when they are away from their family.

We want every child to feel safe and loved while they are here. Consistency and routine help create comfort for children when they are away from their family. The best part – they know what to expect and can feel confident and great about their day.

We also want every child to have a purposeful day. Our teachers plan ahead and create lessons that will build upon each other, as well as, incorporate activities that perk their natural curiosity.

Every classroom has a schedule that is age appropriate, so depending upon which class your child is in this example could be slightly different.

Daily Sheets, Monthly Newsletters and Take-homes for Parents    As a communication tool, parents receive a “daily sheet” every day at pick up that explains what happened during the day. These are sent home so that families have a general idea of the days events. We are happy to discuss your individual child’s experience at any time. We want to cooperate and team with parents, so that your family has an excellent experience at our center.

Teachers also send home a monthly newsletter that describes what is happening in the classroom, announcements and reminders and about what you can work on with your child at home.  For instance, during September and October we will be working on the letters “a” through “g” in our classroom. One way to practice a letter with your child is to play a verbal word game. Please practice these with your child during the next few months – a great activity to hang on the refrigerator or work on in the car.

Portfolios, Conferences, Specialist Classes   A portfolio is a collection of a child’s work and shows their progress and accomplishments over a period of time.  Our teachers collect student work for their portfolio each year they attend the Learning Lodge. Portfolios are shared with families during conferences and sent home during the Spring conference.

We hold Parent Teacher conferences twice a year for all children. We encourage all families to participate in parent conferencing.  This is a great time to sit down with your child’s teacher and learn more about how your child is developing and learning. The teachers work very hard to prepare for conferences, so that they can share your child’s successes with you.
