Our extended family approach is a significant component of our philosophy. The collaboration that we engage in with families supports our ability to individualize and focus on skills and strengths that each child exhibits. We recognize that all families have unique characteristics and we value what each family brings to our program. We partner with families and we value their input and presense in ways that make sense for their family structure. We have an open-door policy and famiies are welcome to be here as they choose, but are not required to participate at any level as determined by classroom teachers or Center administration.
