Family involvement is an important part of a child's educational and developmental process. Parents are valued as partners in their child's development. Partnering with parents creates a common goal and shared interest in the child. At Jill's Daycare and Preschool, parents are encouraged to exchange information daily on changes in routine, family events or activities. Information is then taken and applied to meet the individual needs and interest of the child. Together, building a supportive and nurturing environment creates a sense of community among the families, the children and the staff.
