Communication With Parents
We understand that an important part of your life is finding out about your child’s day and progress at Firm Foundations. Every day each child receives a “Daily Report” that outlines the day. We encourage you to read these report forms and when your child becomes verbal, talk with your child about his/her accomplishments. We also send home a weekly newsletter to keep families informed. Please be sure to check the contents of your child’s backpack each night so that you can find important notes, art projects, and so forth. We encourage parental participation and believe that a parent’s involvement is important to the success of the program!
Parent-teacher conferences are held two times per school year (TWO’s thru PK4). Winter and spring conferences are voluntary. Teachers will prepare an evaluation for the purpose of sharing observations and documenting the development of your child. Evaluations will come home in your child’s folder on a specified day provided in the weekly newsletter.
If you have any concerns, at any time, please contact your child’s teacher via note, phone call or email. If you have a message for a teacher during school hours, please call and we will relay the message. Your child’s teacher will respond as soon as possible.
Please communicate with the teacher about any changes at home or within the family (i.e. parent on a trip, family member in the hospital). These changes can affect your child’s behavior, and it is useful for staff to be aware of these developments. Confidentiality will be respected.
