Observations and Conferences FAQs

  • 2/23/12
  • Posted by: (nicole)

The observation and conferences calendar is open as of 2/21/12 to make appointments!

Observations

What are observations?

An observation is an opportunity to watch your child in action in the classroom. (Please turn off cell phones or silence them, and save pictures/video for another time.) We ask parents to sign in at the front desk, and someone will escort you to the observation area.

How long does it last?

Depending on the classroom, 15-20 minutes at the most. When the observation is over, staff will remind you of the time, or you can keep track yourself.

Can I go in the classroom to observe?

Toddler parents: Outside the classroom observation only.

First year Primary parents: Outside the classroom observation only.

Second year and above Primary parents observe outside the classroom for 10 minutes, then inside for 10 minutes.

When can I observe?

Monday, March 5 through Thursday, April 19, depending on your child’s Movement/Playdeck schedule.

Days NOT Available: Wednesdays, Conference days, Half-school days

What times can I sign up for?

Toddler parents: 9:15-9:30am OR 9:40-9:55am

Primary parents: 9:30-9:50 OR 10-10:20 OR 10:30-10:50

(Parents with more than one child can arrange back to back observations.)

Can my partner and I observe together?

Of course! We encourage you to observe together. We ask that other family members or friends visit in May for Grandparent and Special Friends Day.

Can I schedule an observation the same day I want to observe?

It is highly unlikely that a time will be available for you to observe at the last minute. The classrooms often schedule special projects, circle times, etc. around observations to make sure you can see your child in action.

How do I schedule an observation?

Call, stop by, or email Nicole/Tychelle at the front desk!

Please have a couple of dates/times in mind – this will make scheduling a much simpler process.

Conferences

When are conferences?

Conferences are on Fridays, April 13 and April 20.

How long are conferences?

Conferences last 25 minutes.

What times can I sign up for?

Primary conferences start at 8am and are scheduled on the half hour until 3pm, depending on the teacher’s break schedule.

Toddler conferences start at 8am and are scheduled on the half hour until 11:30am.

Is there a cut-off to schedule my conference?

In order for the classroom teacher to properly prepare for your conference, you must sign up by noon, Friday, March 23 for the 4/13 conference day and noon, Friday, April 6 for the 4/20 conference day.
