May I come visit my child at the center?
Yes! Our center has an open door policy. You are also welcome on field trips and during family events. Please be aware of how your child will respond to you coming and visiting as some children will be distraught after a visit.
In what ways can I be involved in my child's program?
We encourage you to come and visit your child and participate in the activities of the day. Speak with your child's teacher for special upcoming events or let them know about your special talents and interests.
Does the Center have parenting books or resources I can borrow?
Yes, we have a lending library with books that can be checked out. We also have a wealth of handouts to share with you concerning your child's development. Let us know what information you need and we can help you find it.
How do I request a parent conference?
We provide parent conferences twice a year AND upon request. Feel free to ask your child's teacher if you would like to schedule one.
If I have a concern about services my child is receiving what can I do?
Please feel free to speak with the Coordinator with any questions you may have.
Should I notify the center if there are questions surrounding custody issues?
Unless otherwise notified in your child's enrollment packet, we assume both parents have legal custody and both have full rights to leave our center with their child. We can only enforce custody matters if we have copies of the court orders on file.
Is there a Parent Group?
Yes! The REFC Parent Organization is a recognized student club whose mission is to increase family involvement. Meetings are held regularly and information on upcoming events, fundraising, or activities is posted in the center lobby. Contact the Coordinator to join.
