Grandparents are a unique gift, providing wisdom and perspective wrapped in unconditional love. Grandparents can be the special friends who listen without judgment and speak from the heart.
Whether you regularly drop off or pick up your preschooler, or occasionally visit from out of town, know that your involvement in your young one’s classroom experience is memorable and meaningful.
Aside from the events highlighted below, grandparents are always welcome to coordinate with teachers to come in and read to the class, share a tradition or skill, and see your grandchildren playing, learning and growing!
Grandparents may also choose to join the community for other community-wide events: Pumpkin Party, Winter Celebration, Pajama Picnic, and the annual Tuition Assistance Auction in February (that is, if you haven’t already been enlisted to watch your grandchildren for the evening).
