A strong home-school connection demonstrates to children that we are all working toward the same goals and makes the lessons we impart at school even more significant and enduring.

Our children, teachers, and parents are all partners in the education and child development at Burbank Jewish Preschool. It is important to us for parents to be both actively involved in their children’s development, as well as being constantly informed of their children’s progress in learning and development. We encourage parents to be active contributors to children’s activities in the classroom and in the school, and we have an open communication policy between teachers, staff and parents.

Here are some of the ways we ensure that Burbank Jewish Preschool parents can be constantly involved in their child’s development:

Communication
Active communication between teachers and parents. Our teachers are easily accessible via email or phone to discuss unique needs and concerns with parents.
 
Curriculum Night
The goal of this evening is for parents to connect with one another and have a hands-on experience with what their child will be learning throughout the year. Parents have always appreciated this opportunity to learn all about our unique educational philosophy!

​Parent-teacher conferences
Parent/teacher conferences keep parents up to date on their child’s progress. Teachers are also available to meet with parents privately outside of the formal conference time.

Parents can observe anytime
Our classrooms are always open to parents. Parents can observe their child in class to see for themselves how their child is doing in school. Please schedule a time with the administration.

Parent Got Talent
We warmly welcome parents to  come in and share a hobby or their occupation with their child’s class.

​Parent Association
The PA works as a liaison between the parents, the school Director and the teachers. The PA works during the year to support events and programs for the children and enhance the school.

​Photo Updates
Each week our faculty posts photos of the children’s exploration and learning during of the week.

Special Events
We cherish the warm relationship we enjoy with our parents that is regularly nurtured through our special programs like Parents' Night Out, holiday celebrations, Dad's Donuts, Mom's Muffins, Annual Art Auction and more!
