How can I be involved in my pre-school student’s life at WCA?
Volunteer involvement at WCA is welcomed and encouraged. Teachers often have tasks and/or enrichment activities that can be enhanced by parent assistance. In addition, your teacher will let you know when class observation visits are scheduled so that you can make plans to attend and see your child’s class in action.
On a day-to-day basis, parents are asked not to interrupt the classroom once it is in progress. Any messages or forgotten items may be left at the front office, and your student will receive them.
Is after-school care available?
Several WCA teachers offer after-school care for WCA students at the Lafayette Campus. For additional information about after-school care at the Lafayette campus, inquire in the Admissions Office.
The best way to appreciate all of the wonderful things included in WCA’s preschool is to schedule a visit!
