Parents are an integral part of the school, working together with the teachers/directors as the administrators and officers of the school. Each family shares in the business operation of the school, thus making it truly a cooperative venture. At our evening classes we discuss education topics designed to help us both as parents and as parent-teachers in the classroom. We usually meet twice a month at 7pm on a weekday evening.
One parent per child attends a 2-2 1/2 hour parent education class, usually 2 times per month. These parent education classes are held either Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday evenings depending on the class in which your child is enrolled.
PNS families say it was well worth their commitment. Parents and children have the pleasure of learning and playing side by side. Families build a strong community of friends that can last a lifetime. Teachers provide invaluable insights into parenting and child development.
Parent education classes are taught through lecture, discussion and observation of children. Parent education classes are for adults only; children do not attend this portion of the program.
