Meeting with Teachers

Families are strongly encouraged to “connect” with teachers on a daily basis, when dropping off or picking up children.  During the Center hours, however, longer discussions are somewhat distracting if the teacher is not expecting your visit.  It can be especially difficult for the teacher to have an extended conversation with you at drop-off time in the morning or pick-up time in the evening, when many children will be requiring her/his attention.  If you have a specific question or concern, please ask the teacher in person or in a note to arrange a time when you both can have some uninterrupted time to talk.

Family/Teacher conferences are available at any time that you request.  Each program offers scheduled conferences twice a year.

Please direct your questions and concerns about your child or about the program in general to your child’s teacher or to the director.  The director and teachers will always make time available to talk with families.
