PARENTS AS PARTNERS
Parents play a valued and integral role in every aspect of our school community. Parental participation in the education process is a keynote of the Evergreen philosophy of early childhood education and accordingly is both expected and required. Parents are viewed as equal partners, working in tandem with teachers toward a common goal.
Evergreen offers numerous opportunities for meaningful involvement. Parents serve on various committees that provide vital support including daily classroom activities like poetry and cooking with children; attending parent meetings and discussions,; working to improve the school’s grounds through gardening and construction projects, engaging in formal and informal discussions about educational goals and attending special events and celebrations.
