About Parent Participation

Why is parent participation so important?

Parent Participation Preschools are unlike other preschools.   At Hobby Hill, parents are directly involved with their child’s first experience in a classroom setting.  Once or twice a month, parents have the opportunity to take on the role of teacher’s assistant in the classroom. 

Parent Participation means that parents are invited to take part in the administration of the school, to attend a monthly evening meeting that offers a  free professional parent education presentation and short discussions regarding school business.

Studies have shown that parents who are active in their child’s first educational experience, stay active throughout their child’s years of formal education.   Being active in your child’s education, is one of the most important factors in contributing to a child’s success at school 

Hobby Hill Parent Participation Preschools is a great place for both children and their parents to learn new skills, meet new people, and create meaningful lasting friendships.  At Hobby Hill children take the first steps in a school setting together, with their parents.  It is a wonderful, important and precious time.
