At Learning Ladders, we believe that it is a partnership between families and school that is essential to provide a strong nurturing and educating environment to children. The key to this is parent involvement and consistent communication between parents and school. We know it is important for you to know about your child’s day, upcoming school events, and progress in all areas of your child’s learning and development. As a first step towards this, we begin our partnership with a parent orientation. We invite each incoming new as well as transitioning child’s family to come meet with teachers once shortly before the start date, bring the child if possible and tell us about them. A welcome letter from each class outlining important information about the class, class expectations and children’s milestones is also sent home. This allows for clear understanding on mutual expectations and establishes common goals. It paves an important foundation for creating the very best early childhood education experience for you and your child.
Our school communicates with parents in multiple ways from daily experience sheets to weekly emails to monthly newletters. We also organize formal Parent teacher conference three times a year. This fosters the connection between home and school to build relationships and create a continuity of experiences, which increase a child’s sense of security and wellbeing.
Because a consistent and open dialogue between parents, teachers and school management is critical to child’s success we often invite parents to participate in their child’s class. It can be through participation during cultural inclusion events, Mother day’s lunch, Book Fair, International Mother Language Day, NAYEC week, Annual picnic, Parent Appreciation breakfast, participation in parent seminar, curriculum night or to celebrate your child’s birthday in her class. Do contact us if you want to participate in any of these events and we would love to see you at our school.
