A Parent Involvement Preschool (PIP) is a place for families and teachers to work together, creating a positive, supportive, and enriched educational environment for children. Children and parents learn new skills, build community and share in their first school experience together.
At Dunbar Memorial Preschool, parents/caregivers are invited to volunteer in the classroom as they wish, but duty days are not required. Spending time in the classroom provides parents/caregivers the opportunity to observe their child in a school setting and see how they interact and learn.
Parents are directly involved in the administration of the preschool. General meetings occur 4 nights per school year and attendance is expected. Parent education nights follow these general meetings, which provide opportunities for parents to learn and discuss parenting practices.
