Parent Volunteering Opportunities

Prekindergarten

Home Visits: Home visits are made to each student’s home when they begin the program. These short visits (usually 20 to 30 minutes) are simply a time for the teachers to get to know each child better in a comfortable and secure setting outside of school. If scheduling a visit in your home is difficult, the teachers will be happy to make other arrangements. 

Classroom Visits: Parents are always welcome to visit, observe, and participate in the classroom on an informal basis. Please contact the teacher if you wish to do so. Formal Parent Visitation Days are also scheduled during the school year.

Family Fun Days: "Family Fun" days are special events planned for the preschool students and their families. Family field trips, guest speakers and performers, science nights, and make-it/take-it workshops, are a few of the fun days that will be conducted throughout the year. 

Monthly Field Trips: Parent volunteers to assist in offsite learning opportunities that extend the curriculum and learning in our classrooms. 

Birthdays: Each parent is asked to come in on their child’s birthday and volunteer to help create a craft project in the preschool classroom.  

Bi-Monthly Parents as Partners: This is a volunteer program intended to foster parent participation in our preschool classroom by inviting parents to participate with their child on a classroom project.  

Parent Programming: The teachers believe that parents play a critical role in their children’s education. Evidence supports a positive relationship between parent involvement in education and student academic achievement, attitudes, and aspirations. The Parent Facilitator works to provide positive opportunities for parent involvement in a variety of ways:

  • parent educational workshops,
  • "Family Fun" days,
  • home and in-class visits,
  • newsletters and educational mailings and
  • parent/child "homework" activities.
