Each year, the Preschool conducts a comprehensive program evaluation to ensure that our services align with our goals and objectives. Collecting and incorporating family feedback is an invaluable part of this process as we aim to provide the best preschool experience for young children. Thoughts and ideas from our families about what we are doing well and what we could do better help us to improve our practices and shape future school improvements that truly reflect the needs of our community. Family surveys let us know how we are doing.
All responses are completely anonymous and confidential and we share results of our program evaluation with parents, staff members, and the Preschool’s Board of Directors.
