Academic Progress
Your child is in a constant state of development. This progress is most intense during the preschool and elementary school years. Furthermore, itis usual for developmental changes to occur in spurts; sudden, often remarkable, accelerations followed by plateaus which may have frustratingly long durations. 

teachers are well aware of the process, know what to look for, and can effectively nurture the child along from one state to the next.

Conferencing, we feel, is another highly effective way to keep parents apprised of a child’s progress in all grade levels. A child’s performance is not nearly as significant as the interpretation of that performance. if a child’s performance is on target for his or her immediate stage of development, we will advise the parents. if there is a problem, the parent/guardian will be advised in a special conference if need be, and remedial.
