Parents

The teachers and administrators at Peninsula Children’s Learning Center believe that with each new enrollment we enter into an important partnership with you, the parent, aimed at the positive development, learning and well-being of your child. Our goal is to ensure that every child and family has a positive, enriching experience and enjoys their time with our program.

Regular, ongoing communication between parents and teachers is vital to providing the best care and early childhood education possible. We hope parents will spend a few minutes each morning and afternoon checking in with their child’s teacher to share information and build a positive parent-teacher partnership. Parents are invited to share their interests, skills, and family culture with the classrooms and program as that fits for each family and class.

Parents

Peninsula hosts parent-teacher conferences semi-annually. During the conference your child’s teacher will communicate with you about your child’s progress and give you a written assessment, and you will be asked to contribute to your child’s educational goals and to share information about your child’s needs and interests. In addition to these scheduled conferences, anytime you have a question or concern about your child’s progress or the program and want to have a longer discussion with your child’s teacher, please schedule a special conference.
