Open and frequent communication is very important. You are encouraged to talk often to your child’s teacher. The better we communicate with each other, the better we are able to care for your child. There is a correspondence log in each classroom to write messages to the teacher, if needed, if she is not present at the time you come to the room to pick up or drop off your child. Administrative staff members are available to answer your questions or to address your needs as well. Feel free to drop in or make an appointment, make a phone call, send an e-mail, whatever works for you. We maintain an open door policy.
Parent/teacher conferences can be requested and scheduled at any time according to the needs of your child, and are regularly scheduled twice each year in the fall and spring. Teachers prepare written evaluations based on classroom observations and interactions to be shared at the twice annual conferences. You are encouraged to attend those conferences so that we can be sure that we are doing all we can to meet your child’s needs.
A monthly calendar of EMCCC events is given to each parent. It includes enrichment activities, days closed, fundraising events, and anything else that is important for that month. The calendar is also posted on the bulletin boards in the Center.
We ask that you let us know in advance when your child will be on vacation or away from the Center for any other reason so the teacher can plan accordingly.
