What is "Parent Participation"?

"Parent Participation Preschools are different than other preschools because our parents are directly involved. Parents have the opportunity to be with their child one or twice a month in the classroom, to have a say in the administration of their child’s school and to attend monthly evening meetings with free parenting education and school business discussions. Parent Participation Preschools are a great place for both children and parents to learn new skills, meet new friends and take the first steps together in a school setting."

What If I Can't Participate?

No problem!!

Parent Participation is completely optional and doesn't impact your enrolment. It is simply a way we can keep costs lower while providing excellent education to all of our students. There will always be a parent in the room with Teacher Kristel, but if your schedule doesn't allow for it to be you, we have several community days / parent roles / other ways to get involved.
