Our Wonderful Families
Families are a very important part of our center, and we strongly encourage you to actively participate in center life.
Open Door Policy
You are always welcome to visit your child’s classroom. We encourage parents in all of our programs to come spend time with us – play during choice time, explore the sand box, share lunch time, or bring your own special talents to share. Observation windows are available for parents who may want to observe their child from outside the classroom.
Every child has a notebook with observations made by the teachers throughout the year. Important advancements, interesting comments or conversations, play-by-play interactions with friends, and photos of your child at play are just a few examples. The portfolio is always available for you to browse through by yourself or with your child.
Please always feel welcome to talk to your child’s teacher. If it is difficult to find time to talk when you are in the center, leave a note for your child’s teacher and she/he will call you at your convenience.
Parent Information Board
You can find a parent information board on the wall outside your child’s classroom. Look on the board for daily plans, announcements, field trip permission forms, photo and art displays and other items of interest. Parent information boards are also located in the hallway on either side of the front office.
Because we believe that home is the most important factor in a child’s development, we offer each of our families a home visit as they begin enrollment in a classroom. A home visit is a time for you and your child to get to know your child’s teacher better and to begin to build a connection between your home and the center.
Our center becomes richer as our families become more involved. We encourage you to participate in your child’s classroom and in the many social and educational functions planned for parents. View some of the many ways for parents to participate in NBCC activities.
