How often can I see my child?
Visits are arranged at the time of admission. Some children go home for weekend and holiday visits, but some visits are just for an afternoon.
How do I keep up with my child’s progress?
You can call the home and talk to one of the Family Teachers whenever you like. We will also call you on a frequent basis. We will send you report cards and progress reports on your child’s academic progress. We will also invite you to review a more formal report on your child four times a year. We are always open to talking with parents about their child.
