We welcome parents to visit the Appleseed whenever they are able. You are encouraged to get involved in our early childhood education program. We know that parent involvement helps a child to feel that home and school are linked and working together.
We understand that most families we serve are working and have limited spare time. That is why there are a variety of ways to engage in parent involvement. Sometimes teachers send home projects you and your child can work on at home and bring back to school. Also, older children go on field trips occasionally and, at these times, we will ask for chaperones. If you are not able to spend a whole day with us, feel free to come in for lunch, read the class a special story, or just send in a special snack you and your child have made at home. We also have the opportunity for a “Muffins with Mothers“ and a “Donuts with Dads” on the Friday morning before Morher’s Day and Father’s Day. You don’t want to miss it!
The staff at Appleseed makes every effort to keep you informed about your child's day. We feel it is important for you to know what goes on during your child's busy time with us. The stronger the communication between your home and center, the better the experience for both you and your child will be. Each day, you receive a "Toddler Tattler” that briefly summarizes your child's day, including meals, naptimes, playtimes, and how often their diaper was changed. The center makes every effort to keep you up to date on all happenings through notices, Daily Notes and pictures of your child engaged in activities emailed to you.
