What does the parent participation entail?

  • We are a non-profit society that runs due to the efforts of our parents. This means everyone plays a role in the operation of the preschool whether it be as the President, Field Trip Coordinator, or the person responsible for making the playdough. 
  • ​The parent will have approximately 2 duty days a month where they get to be the classroom helper and their child gets to be the special helper. This is an amazing opportunity where you get to observe your child in their first learning environment as well as you get to know the other children and families through this unique opportunity.
  • The parent attends a mandatory monthly meeting (the evening of the first Wednesday of every month) where the business of running the preschool is discussed and you have the opportunity to hear some amazing guest speakers.
