Wilkes Developmental Day School appreciates your trust in us with the care and education of your child. Parental involvement is strongly encouraged. Therefore, parents are welcome and encouraged to visit our school at anytime! 

Our Family Handbook describes many opportunities for you to become involved, including suggesting activities for your child's classroom. Our Family Handbook can be viewed and downloaded from a link on this page.

School Goals are developed from the information obtained from parent surveys.

The teacher will often share information about things happening in the program and wants to know about things the child is doing at home. 
The teacher asks about things that are important to the family and uses this information to help the child grow and learn. The parents receive written reports about the child at least twice a year. The program helps families get to know other families in the program and encourages families to support each other. The parents are always welcome at the program and are invited to participate by helping to plan events, being involved in decisions about the program and taking on leadership roles.
