A parent's involvement in their child's education is encouraged at UHCLC in both formal and informal ways. It is important for parents to know what is happening in their child's classroom as well as at the Center. We encourage daily communications between parents and teachers. We believe that a parent is the child’s first teacher and we want to be partners together so we can help each child get off to a great start in life. Please make every effort to stay informed. The following are some of UHCLC’s communication tools:
- Monthly Newsletter
- Weekly Lesson Reviews
- Parent Partnership Board located in the front lobby
- Parent Information Boards located in each classroom
- Parent-Teacher Conferences
- Open House
- Daily Reports from the classroom
- Customer Surveys
- Pro Care Accounting System
- Phone Calls
- Special Events
- Face-to-face Conversations
- Parent Volunteer Program
Additionally, we want to provide our families with resources they may need on their journey through the early years with their child. Please visit the links listed below.
