Successful communication between the families and the Center is one of the most important components of our educational success. Families need to know what their children are doing and learning at the Center, and teachers need to know about a child’s life at home. When teachers, administrators and families all work together, children benefit.
At the Center for Young Children and Families, we offer a variety of both formal and informal opportunities for communication between home and Center.
It is the intention of our staff to “touch base” on a daily basis with each family. However, teachers are unable to engage in lengthy conversation during their time with the children. Each program posts important and timely information about your child’s program on a Family Information Bulletin Board in or just outside of each classroom, and sends the information to provided email accounts, places other messages of importance in your family mailbox in the front hallway. Each program uses a selection of the following methods to communicate with families:
- Monthly Newsletter and Calendar
- Daily Happenings-posted on Family Information Bulletin Board
- Classroom Documentation Panels-posted around the classrooms
- Parent/Teacher Meetings and Conferences
