Loved Ones Welcome
Family is not an important thing. It’s everything.
-Michael J. Fox
A child’s family is a child’s everything. We take that belief to heart.
We love the pride on a child’s face when it is their turn to share their helper for the class time! Helpers may include parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles or family friend. A child has the opportunity to introduce their helper to their teacher and their friends. “This is my Dad. He gets to play today!”
Each helper brings a unique personality and set of skills to their helping day, creating a continuously rich learning environment. Children learn from their classmates’ families; exchanging ideas, playing together and creating bonds. Helpers simultaneously learn about early childhood development with support from their teachers and preschool staff.
Our families invest in their children and their classmates by coming together to enrich their social emotional development. This involvement aides in the transition from home to school in a supportive, loving environment.
Every family belongs in our program. The feeling of belonging creates a remarkable community. Every family is welcome to become a part of the West Side Preschool family.
