Parent Helper Information and Volunteering

Kids’ Kastle is a co-operative venture between the teachers and parents of the children who attend. As part of a co-operative venture, parents are active participants in the operation of the school. Some parents volunteer as board members, Bingo volunteers and committee members. Others bring their special talents such as dance, music or carpentry to share with the children. All parents (or grandparent or caregiver) use their volunteer days to assist in the class as the ‘helping/duty day parent’. Should the helper be unable to attend the day scheduled, then it is that person’s responsibility to notify the school and find a replacement. All volunteers must ensure the handbook and the policies and procedures manuals have been read and signed off accordingly.

Duty Day sign-up sheets for the months of September and October will be available at our first General Meeting and then posted on a monthly basis. M/W/F parents are expected to volunteer a minimum of 1 duty day per month and T/TH parents (am & pm)are expected to volunteer 1 duty day every 6 weeks or so. You may volunteer more if you wish.If you are opting out of duty days and are willing to pay the extra fees to do so please be aware that this does not exempt you from other Co-op responsibilities. All parents are expected to attend the General Meetings, one Toy Wash, volunteer for extracurricular activities ( Bingo help, fundraising, school trips , committee help etc..) and provide Play Dough at least once per year.

Please indicate who will be the parent helper (i.e. mother, father, caregiver or grandparent). If there is more than one person, please indicate all.


Fundraising & Other Participation Guidelines

During the school year, fundraising activities require the support and the participation of the parents. If the school were unable to reach its fundraising goals, the tuition fees may have to be increased.

Please advise if the child has been involved with other agencies such as Niagara Support Services, Infant Education etc). Are there any problems or fears that you think the teacher should be aware of?


DSC PRESCHOOL SCREEN:

This indicates areas where environment or programming can be changed to enhance the benefits to each child and also indicates areas where a child may need further screening to identify areas where support is needed prior to school entrance.

All results are confidential and shared with parents, who may be present during the screening. Parental consent to participate is required, please sign below.
