“One of the most important factors in creating a good school is always going to be parental involvement in its life.” (U.S. Department of Education, 1993)

Dear Parents:
Since 1950, Taylor Tot Playhouse has been preparing children for success in every aspect of life. Firmly based in sound, traditional teaching methods that focus on the pillars of a solid academic foundation – reading, writing, and math – Taylor Tot Playhouse believes in a “whole child” approach that nurtures all aspects of a child’s development. At Taylor Tot Playhouse, I recognize the importance of fostering a collaborative environment where parents feel empowered to participate in their child’s educational experience. I cannot ignore the data, which shows by every measure of success, that children do better in school when their parents are active participants in the education process.

At Taylor Tot Playhouse, I believe that our most valuable resource is YOU, the families who entrust their children’s education to our staff. I have always enjoyed wonderful partnerships with the families who support our school, which is one of the reasons that I have had the privilege of educating generations of families at Taylor Tot Playhouse! And, I know that our rich and lengthy history is due in large part to the tireless support of our families. For this, I am truly grateful. However, I also know that in order to continue the Taylor Tot tradition of excellence, I as well as the parents must always strive to do more.

As I embark upon what is sure to be another successful school year, it is cause for me to take a moment and evaluate our practices and policies, and make adjustments as necessary. I know that as parents, you want the best education possible for your children; as an educator, I want to ensure that we are meeting and even exceeding your expectations.

Consequently, with the beginning of each school year, as a condition of your child’s enrollment, each family will be required to volunteer a minimum of twenty-five (25) hours per school year in support of school-sponsored activities and events. I anticipate that this requirement will be easily met through participation in the myriad events coordinated by the Moms and Dad’s Club and other opportunities provided by myself. Finally, there will be a buy-out option for families who are absolutely unable to meet the hourly requirements, however your actual participation is preferred.

In closing, the staff and I are excited about this opportunity to solidify partnership with our families. We are confident that with your help, Taylor Tot Playhouse can take our tradition of academic excellence to even greater heights. Together, we CAN do more!

Should you have any questions or suggestions regarding the parent participation policy, please do not hesitate to contact me. I welcome your feedback and input.

Warmly,

Mrs. Andrews
