Tips for Parents

7 Habits of Highly Effective Parents

The following tips are a daily reference to help you make the Child Development Center the most positive experience possible for you and your children.

  1. Drop-off children by 9:00 a.m. each morning… Remember:
    • The center is an educational resource with a set schedule and curriculum.
    • The bulk of the daily curriculum happens in the morning
    • Children dropped off on-time nap better, join in playgroups easily, and don’t miss computer or playground time
  2. Greet and communicate with teachers when dropping off and picking up children
  3. Take an extra moment to:
    • Read bulletin boards and notes from teachers
    • Check art folders and/or cubbies
  4. Make sure children’s cubbies are stocked with weather appropriate clothing
  5. Follow the Guidelines for Illness at School
  6. Volunteer to read or share your skill area/expertise with the class
  7. Show appreciation and say “thank you” to teachers and staff
