Casa

  1. STUDENT INDEPENDENCE In an effort to teach independence, we ask that you please dress your child in clothing that they can easily put on and take off.  Elastic waist pants are best for younger children so that they may have independence in the washroom too!
  2. CASA PARENT PHONE CALLS Reminder to check your scheduled time.  The purpose of these calls is to let you know how your child’s transition in the program is going.  To be respectful of other parents/teacher’s time, the 15 minute length will be strictly adhered to.  Tip: consider ahead of time what you would like to discuss should you have any specific concerns or questions.
