We have an open door policy, meaning parents are welcome to visit the school at any time. We encourage active participation in the program by parents and invite them to share customs or traditions. Parents may also assist in any of the school’s planned activities, demonstrate skills related to their hobbies or work, or help with the various fundraising activities.
- All on-site volunteers are legally required to obtain their first aid/cpr and a vulnerable sector reference check a This can be done at your local police department for a minimal charge. You will need photo identification that has your name, date of birth and address.
This may be your child’s first experience in a group setting on their own. Children react differently to separation from their parent and/or caregiver. Our goal is to make your child’s entry into the program as comfortable and positive as possible.
- The children are gradually integrated into their program during the month of September. Each child will be invited to visit the school accompanied by a parent/caregiver for a short orientation session held during their program’s regular school hours. This visit allows the child to explore the environment and become familiar with the teachers and the surroundings while parents are likewise introduced to the staff and tour the facility.
- Plan to spend some time integrating your child into the program, slowly if necessary. Some children will be fine if you leave after the first visit, others will need more time.
- We make every effort to accept and accommodate children with special needs into the program. We work in collaboration with Children’s Integration Support Services (upon approval of funding) in order to create a positive and supportive environment that meets the child’s specific needs.
