We depend on the parents of our preschool to take an active role and assist the teachers in the running of the school. We have five employees – our amazing teachers and their aides – whose primary focus is the children. All other aspects of the school are volunteer run, including annual events, fundraising, classroom coordination and the board that is elected by the preschool community.
We believe involving parents through classroom volunteering is an integral part of the program that gives your child the opportunity to share his/her school experience with you. There is no special training needed – all we need is your extra pair of hands and your big heart. We encourage parents, grandparents, caregivers or any other special person to share this time with the children. Volunteer days are your opportunity to see what a typical school day looks like and share some special time with your preschooler. You can expect to spend some wonderful one-on-one time with your child, meet and assist other students, and lend a hand with classroom activities and cleanup. Please help to ensure cooperative play at all times and refer any problems to the teacher.
Volunteering with the preschool is a fantastic opportunity to observe your child’s development first-hand and allow the preschool to meet licensing requirements, while keeping fees to a minimum.
