As part of our organization’s name, the word “family” signifies the important role parents and caregivers play in their child’s development. We believe that parents are a child’s first and best teacher. We encourage parents and family members to become actively involved in our programs and as classroom volunteers. Each of our centers offers the opportunity to serve on a Parent Committee that meets regularly and elects Policy Council members. This level of involvement provides family members with opportunities to share ideas and suggestions.
