Can I visit my child during his/her school day and/or help in any way?
The A+ Learning Academy (A+LA) encourages parents to be involved in their child’s growth. Feel free to join your child, but we recommend you schedule a time to volunteer with the director. In addition, we ask our parents to contribute a minimum of two hours per year in one of the following categories: phone duty, direct donation, making materials, sewing, spring and fall classroom cleaning, and playground cleaning.
How do I know what type of activities my child is involved in?
The A+LA is committed to keeping a high level of communication with all parents. Examples include Monthly Newsletters, the Parent Bulletin Board, Daily Update Charts (for infants through two’s) and Weekly Reports for preschoolers. The Monthly Newsletter informs of upcoming events, curriculum updates, and other helpful information. The Parent Bulletin Board posts certificates, recent inspections, updates, etc. The Weekly Report will inform of nutritional, educational, social, and physical updates for your child.
How will my child be disciplined if necessary?
The rules of the classroom include the teaching of appropriate behavior through fairness and consistency. The children are guided toward appropriate behavior through positive reinforcement, diversion, and/or discussion with the child as to a better way to handle the situation. A caregiver may only use positive methods of discipline and guidance that encourage self-esteem, self-control and self-direction. There will be NO harsh, cruel, or unusual treatment at any time.
Does A+LA offer Vision and Hearing Screening?
The Vision and Hearing Screening Program, Chapter 36 of the Texas Health and Safety Code, requires that all children enrolled in any public, private, parochial, or denominational school and are 4-years old by September 1st must be screened or have a professional examination for possible vision and hearing problems. A+LA provides this at no additional cost.
