Parent Participation Days

The Power of Play: Our Parents Support

Parent involvement is a vital part of St. Philip Early Learning Center. Parents are expected to assist the staff in the classroom, based on the number of days your child is enrolled and how many days he/she attends. This assistance allows us to maintain a high quality program at an affordable rate, and allows you to participate in your child’s education.

Pearl, Ruby and Topaz parents are not required to volunteer in the classrooms, but are encouraged to spend time in the Emerald and Pre-K classrooms if they would like to any time during the school year.  As a Pearl, Ruby or Topaz parent, helping out even if it is for 2 hours, will give you a firsthand opportunity to see what the classrooms are like for your child in the upcoming years.
