After the afternoon meeting and snack, children will choose an activity to do until their parent or guardian comes to pick them up. Similar to drop-off, parents or guardians will come to the child’s class to pick up their child. This also allows the teacher to talk to the parent or guardian about their child’s day, or update them about upcoming events. These check-ins may seem short, but daily conversations with families help build the foundation for a positive, meaningful relationship. This is also a time parents or guardians can express their concerns or ask questions.
UPDATE: The Durham PreK Governance Committee voted on August 19, 2021 to waive parent fees for the 2021-2022 school year. The Durham PreK Application is still open! Click here to access the application information and materials.
