Current Families

We value our relationship and communication with parents, as we serve as partners in the care of their children. Children feel more comfortable at ODN when they know their parents and teachers communicate with one another. We encourage you to let us know anything that might help us in our work with your child. We work hard at ODN to maintain higher standards and all of us are dedicated to continuous quality improvement and staff training. That cannot be done in a vacuum. We need your feedback and encouragement!

You know your child and his/her abilities, interests and temperament best. We encourage you to share information with your child’s teachers each and every day. Perhaps something unusual happened at home or over the weekend that could affect your child’s mood. If you take a moment to mention these things when you drop your child off in the morning, our teachers will know to be extra patient and understanding if any unusual behavior presents itself.

Taking time to communicate and linger a bit at the end of the day will also give our teachers a chance to share what they observed of your child during the day. Working together to develop a habit of communicating, we believe, will result in many wonderful benefits for your child including:

  • A deeper understanding and appreciation on our part of your family’s unique ideals, culture, dreams and expectations for growth and maturity.

  • More attentiveness to your child’s development, growth and school readiness.

  • More awareness of developmentally appropriate practices for young children.

  • A greater satisfaction with your child’s care and ODN’s early education program.

  • A healthier relationship between school and home.
