At Tiny Tykes, we believe in the power of the family unit and strong partnerships between teachers, assistants, volunteers, parents and children. We encourage parent involvement and attendance at monthly events and gatherings. Additionally, there are a number of opportunities for families to help in the school and in the classroom.
Parents are responsible for helping to plan and implement the parties and special events that take place throughout the school year. These items include the Halloween party, the Thanksgiving Feast, Christmas party, Valentine’s Day Party, Easter Celebration and the End of Year Celebration in individual classrooms, as well as any other events on the School Calendar. Additionally, parents are asked to volunteer their time making play-dough, providing snacks reading to the children and helping with other opportunities as needed.
Every class has a Room Parent. Room Parents call other parents and delegate assignments. They work with others to arrange details and logistics. Additionally, they may act as a liaison between the teacher and other parents on specific issues or questions.
Parents are valued at Tiny Tykes. We seek to encourage the relationships and fellowship that happens when families of diverse backgrounds come together to share in the joy of their children.
