Communication with Families

In addition to ongoing face to face meetings at pick-up and drop-off times, we also communicate with families through the use of a digital communication app called KidReports. iPads in each classroom allow Twos teachers to send daily reports on:

  • Snacks/meals
  • Diaper changes/potty use
  • Nap times
  • Classroom activities (photos and videos)

Families can also use KidReports to update teachers on sleeping patterns, eating schedule, and any special needs for the day.

Assessments of children’s progress towards developmental goals are done three times each year. Parents/family members are invited and encouraged to attend conferences with the teachers at least twice each year to set goals for each child and discuss growth and development over the course of the program year.
