Family members are welcome to volunteer in your child’s classroom or in any capacity that fits your schedule. We ask that you plan ahead with the program director and encourage you to do this as often as your schedule permits. Children love sharing their classroom with their families, and eager to show off what they are learning. Some ways that parents can get involve include:
- Volunteering in the classroom for a different task or activities like: Read a story, sing a song or spend the afternoon helping with daily activities.
- Taking home items that need to be cut or prepped for classroom activities
- Collecting recyclables at home such as: empty toilet and paper towel rolls, baby food containers, or other clear plastic containers, milk caps, plastic water bottles, etc.
- Participate regularly in Parent Advisory Committee
- Attend special events in the classroom or community
- Donating gently used toys and equipment to the center when your children outgrow them such as costumes, books or outdoor equipment.
- Joining us for holiday celebrations, birthday celebrations and potlucks
- Participating in your child’s daily homework and monthly parent projects.
- Joining us in nature walks and field trips
All parent/guardian volunteers volunteering in the classroom are required to have the current immunizations: MMR, TDap, and the Flu Shot and a current clearance of tuberculosis on file in addition to a signed application for volunteers and a fingerprint clearance.
