Teacher and Parent Conferences
Conferences are held to discuss a child’s development or any school concern can be arranged at the request of parent, teacher, or therapist. A meeting will be set by the teacher at a mutually agreeable time.
Formal conference appointments will be held to discuss your child’s activities and development. Appointments will be arranged by the teacher and/or therapist. This is your best opportunity to learn what your child really is doing at preschool, so we cannot overemphasize the importance of attending this conference. Please make this one of your top priorities for this school year.
It is inappropriate, however to discuss your child at the classroom door or while visiting in the room. Limit your doorway concerns to classroom news, gathering belongings and hugging your child. In depth questions about your child’s day are often embarrassing for your child, unfair to the teacher who is not prepared to thoughtfully respond, and to parents and children who are not interested in your discussion. Please allow your teacher to indicate when it is appropriate to talk with her.
