It is essential that families are heard when they raise a grievance.  All family grievances should be addressed initially at the level closest to the event in an effort to achieve a resolution.  The early identification of a grievance and the prompt initiation of a resolution can help avert further problems.

  1. Classroom Teacher
  2. Director
  3. Early Childhood Committee
