North Early Learning Center has an active Parent Involvement Program that involves parent in all aspects of their child's first school experience. Parents are active members of the Policy Council (a decision-making body) and the Parent Committee. Parents are welcomed during all school hours and we respect our parents as the primary educators of their children. Together, parents and staff decide what roles parents and other community agencies play in assisting staff to plan and implement activities consistent with parents needs and interest, and with the cultural and linguistic diversity of the families (see CFR 1304.40 (a) (5)). Parents participate in classrooms, on field trips, in community events, and in supporting program operations.
