Conferences & Assessments

All parents are invited to participate in parent/teacher conferences. These are conducted twice a year, once in the late fall and late spring. These conferences will be held during center hours and at a time that is convenient for both the parents and the teacher.  

Occasionally a teacher may request a parent conference when there are special concerns in the classroom. We ask that parents respect this request with prompt attention.
