Family & Community Involvement

Family Events & Community

At Preschool we view the family as the child's first teacher. We believe that ALL family members are a vital part of the success of children's education.  If you are an enrolled family, you will be able to participate in trainings, family events and workshops. Families will receive monthly resources focusing on monthly learning targets via parent square and from teachers.
