Family involvement is critical in the success of early child development programs.
Research indicates that when your family plays an active role in your child’s learning, remarkable gains are made for both your family and your child. We know that your family is the real expert when it comes to your child. We welcome your involvement to help us create a meaningful and memorable learning experience that bridges the boundaries between home and school.
By working with you to improve your child’s quality of life and increase language and social development, we enhance your child’s confidence and improve family relationships.
We provide you with a real-time feed of your child’s activities throughout the school day through brightwheel, a computer application that can be downloaded on iPhone, iPad and Android devices. In addition, teachers provide daily communication notes describing how your child’s individual goals were addressed and achieved each day. In turn, your family is encouraged to communicate regularly with KCDC staff through communication notebooks. Our staff also provides your family with quarterly progress notes that indicate areas of your child’s strengths and needs and will meet with you each quarter to review your child’s progress and plan for the future.
Throughout the year, KCDC hosts special school events that offer families the opportunity to gather for socialization, community support and fun. We also offer ongoing family training and workshop opportunities, presented by Keystone staff and child development professionals from the Jacksonville community.
