Daily Communication via Daily Connect!
We understand that being away from your child all day can be challenging. We aim to keep parents involved in their child's day by sending pictures and information through the Daily Connect App. Daily Connect allows you to know if your child needs any supplies, is having a good day, if she is eating , resting, playing and much, much more!
The App is free to parents and caregivers!!
If we had to sum up our philosophy in a single word it would be: Balance.
We believe that balancing emotional, social, intellectual and physical development is key to ensuring your child is happy, healthy and well rounded. We believe that instilling the value of balance at an early age is immeasurably beneficial to your child’s emotional, social, academic and career success down the line.
As educators and care providers we feel it is our duty to support your child’s growth and development first by creating a safe, loving and warm atmosphere in which you and your child feel welcome and comfortable. We feel strongly that children learn best when they are at ease, surrounded by an inviting environment. We are committed to providing your child with a diverse and engaging curriculum designed to engage different types of learning at each stage. We feel that our use of The Creative Curriculum along with our unique emphasis on liberal arts will best provide your child with a solid foundation for future educational success.
Our approach to education is simple, succinct and based on years of industry experience, research and our own continued education.
We believe that our excellent teachers are our greatest asset, that a well-structured schedule will help your child to feel comfortable and secure and that multifaceted and engaging curriculum will foster a higher level of curiosity and growth.
As a business, we feel it is of paramount importance that our business model reflects our values and mission. The Mary Katherine School is dedicated to recruiting, retaining and rewarding the best and brightest teachers available. To this end, we have a unique emphasis on compensation. Because we compensate our teaching staff quite well, we in turn hold them to a much higher standard. We believe this model benefits teachers, students and parents alike.
Because we provide a necessary service to parents and children, we feel that communication and feedback from you is crucial to our success. In addition to receiving periodic updates from The Mary Katherine School, you will have an opportunity to submit bi-annual feedback on the center and meet with your child's teacher to discuss their growth and development. You will be able to select the amount and type of communication you receive in addition to conferences and reviews.
