Maple Leaf Day Care and Education Centre is committed to building strong, positive relationships with parents and families so that children feel safe, secure, and comfortable in the program and with their educators. An open door policy will be promoted to support families in feeling welcome, valued and respected.
As early learning and child care professionals, we welcome and encourage parent involvement. We strive to work together with all families to better meet the needs of all children. Our mission is to work together with parents in helping to prepare their child socially, emotionally, physically, intellectually, creatively, and culturally in the present to best benefit their future. A supportive and trusting relationship between parents and Maple Leaf Day Care and Education Centre is therefore critical in supporting children’s learning and development.
Parent involvement may include but is not limited to:
- Sharing information with program staff and educators through parent teacher meetings
- Spending time in their child’s program
- Improving their knowledge of parenting and child development
- Participating in field trips and special events
- Regular family surveys
Maple Leaf Day Care and Education Centre plans to organize information sessions/presentations free of charge for the families and community on topics such as:
- Transition to public/private school
- Child development
- Parent/child activities
