Be Informed and Involved. As a parent, you are an integral part of your child's learning journey and our community.
At Greatstart Early Learning, we consider ourselves very fortunate to have mothers, fathers and caregivers with a vast array of experiences and perspectives that enrich the school. During enrollment, we set expectations with parents that part of the success in the education of their child is a true partnership between us and them. This entails continuing both academic and social lessons we've imparted after they leave the school everyday. It not only reinforces the value of those lessons but it also provides a healthy learning habit to the child that they will carry througout life. Parents are also encouraged to contribute volunteer hours in a way that is appropriate to their time constraints and skill set. This is consistent with the belief that the children benefit most from a school community in which families are involved in the life of the school. Committed to working closely with you to provide high quality education for our students, we welcome you regularly into the school to discuss progress. Talk to us about ideas you may have to further improve the quality of our programs.
Consultations and Progress Reports
Consultations and Progress Report reviews are held twice a year with the teachers, enabling you to review the learning which has taken place and to discuss your child's upcoming next steps for development. We also encourage you to constantly communicate with your child's teachers about their academic and social learning progress.
