Parent Engagement

Children’s Services encourages parent engagement

We recognize the importance of the family as the child’s first teacher through providing opportunities for families to participate in all aspects of our program. We invite the adults in each child’s life to join their child in class, volunteer in the classroom or attend meetings where we discuss program activities and goals. We encourage all families to join the site advisory committee so that families, community members, and program leadership can share in the development of an excellent early care and education program.
