Parents play a crucial role at St. Luke’s Day School. A variety of interesting activities allow parents to participate in their child’s educational experience, expand their knowledge of early childhood practices, and make new friends.
Keeping parents informed is a priority. The E-Spirit school e-mail updates, annual school-wide and monthly classroom calendars, and supplemental announcements are some of the ways we stay in touch. Our website includes Blog and News, as well as a link to our St. Luke’s Day School Instagram account featuring current events and classroom happenings. The wee Spirit monthly newsletter is on hiatus for the 2017-2018 school year.
St. Luke’s Day School offers formal parent conferences twice a year, in the Fall and again in the Spring. In addition, PreK/K parents have an optional mid-year conference as they consider the next steps for their children’s school placement. Parents are encouraged to make an appointment with the child’s teacher or the school’s Director, Assistant Director, or Assessment Coordinator any time there is a question, concern, or idea to share.
Parents in the Classroom
Parents of children enrolled in our program are welcome at the school at any time and are encouraged to participate in a variety of ways. Parents are invited to share hobbies, careers, cultural celebrations, or other interests with children in the classrooms. As the children get older, teachers invite parents to share a favorite book as a special “classroom reader.” Parents also take turns helping with classroom parties.
Parent Evaluation of our Program
Parents are asked regularly to fill out an evaluation survey concerning the staff and program of St. Luke’s Day School. Parental input is a valuable source for ensuring the continued quality of our school.
