Childswork Parent Orientation & Meet and Greet Reminder

Dear Childswork Families,

Summer camps are in full-swing and the days are flying by! In four short weeks we will welcome our new and returning children and families to the 2018/19 school year at Childswork Learning Center. In eager anticipation our administrative team, faculty, and staff would like to remind you about three important upcoming dates:

Parent Orientation will be held on September 5th at 6:00PM.

This event is for adults. Attendance is required for all new families (minimum of one parent per family) and returning families are strongly encouraged to attend. Childswork will provide complimentary Explorer’s care for a limited amount of children. Please contact Explorer’s Coordinator Candice A. at candicea@childswork.org to register.

This event is designed for parents to meet the administrative team members and learn about Childswork’s best practices and protocols. Parents will also attend a classroom specific orientation led by teachers to learn about the curriculum, classroom procedures, and expectations.

Meet and Greets will be held on September 6th for M-Th and Tu-Th classes. The M-F and MWF classes will meet on September 7th. All Meet and Greets begin at your regularly scheduled morning class arrival time for approximately 1-1.5 hours.

Meet and Greets are attended by both parents and children together. This child-centered activity provides the children with time to spend in their new classrooms, meet new friends and begin to bond with teachers. Our goal is to help children begin the acclimation process and to feel at-home in their new surroundings. Therefore, please know that our teachers will be focused on the children. We kindly request parents do the same.

In a few weeks, you will receive a welcome packet from our school that includes a letter from your classroom teacher and additional information about our school mission, philosophy, and pedagogy.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us at (503)-234-3611.

Our administrative team, faculty and staff look forward to working in partnership with you and your child to create an excellent early childhood education experience!
