Kindergarten Home Visits

"What a tremendous benefit having a special home visit for our child with his teachers! It completely put at ease our first day of school jitters and allowed both parents and our child to get to know his teachers, ask questions, and, more importantly, let the teachers get to know our child in a comfortable space."

Home Visits

Forming strong relationships with children and parents is at the heart of great teaching, learning, and community building. In the fall of 2017, we initiated home visits with incoming kindergarten students. For teachers the visit provides a chance to learn about each child's interests and personality. During the visit, children share their toys, books, and play with teachers in their own space, which gives them a sense of independence and engagement from the start. In addition, parents have the opportunity to share their hopes and dreams for the school year with the teachers. Ultimately, establishing this relationship between teacher and child early helps every child feel a sense of connectedness and familiarity on the first day of school.
