Parent Involvement

Families are invited and encouraged to be involved in many school activities throughout the year.  There are many different ways in which family members can participate and volunteer at school.  Each class needs two class parents to help the teacher with school activities, distributing information to class families, and organizing teacher gifts.  All families in the class may volunteer to read in the classroom, and to share special talents or information with your child’s class.

​FAMILY INVOLVEMENT

Our Programs

The teachers, administrators, and staff at TBY Preschool are united in their belief that all Children are individual learners. No two students have exactly the same skills or learning style. That’s why we create an individual learning plan for every child. Your plan will combine direct instruction, small-group work, and one-on-one tutoring in a way that works for your student.
