Parents can communicate with teachers upon drop off and pick up. At anytime, a parent conference may be set up at the parent/staff member’s request to discuss how a child is doing.
Staff work on potty training in this classroom and encourage children to use the potty throughout the day. We have a diaper changer for those children still in transition.
