Parent Involvement

Butterfly Garden Preschool values communication. Parents and the teacher are partners in the children's education. Parents may share their talents and hobbies, read, sing, cook, or do a special project with the class. Parents are also encouraged to use their time and talents to benefit the school in any other ways (e.g. contribute to newsletter, fundraise, etc.)

Special programs provided for parents include: parent conferences (in February or March), open house in the spring, round table discussions, and classroom volunteer opportunities. Parent/teacher conferences are scheduled on the school calendar and parents are informed of these dates the summer preceding their child's attendance at the program. Families will be notified two or three weeks in advance with a number of options for the time of the conference. Parents and/or the teacher may request additional conferences at any time during the school year. A written assessment report of each student's progress will be given to parents for the areas of social, cognitive, physical, and emotional development. A copy of the assessment report will remain in the child's file.

We welcome comments and suggestions. When areas of concern arise, the problem should be brought to the attention of the teacher who will listen to your suggestion and/or grievance and attempt to work through the problem. A parent questionnaire will be sent home two to three times a year. Parents are strongly encouraged to communicate any suggestions, comments, or concerns any time throughout the year.
