Official Results of the NAEYC Parent Survey from Self-Study

Dear Preschool Families and Members of our Community:

We are fortunate to represent high quality early childhood education as one of the nation’s NAEYC accredited programs. In our self-study year we conducted a parent survey of 2016-2017 current parents. The results are below and we are thrilled to share these results with you, our community. The required criteria for the parent survey is that we will have at least 80% positive results in total (not per question).

The reason we are thrilled is because not only do we already meet the standards of high quality as evidenced by our assessors, but based on our parent feedback, we meet the standards based on parent experience as well.

If you are or were a parent in our program and during this survey you happen to mark “no, no but or don’t know”  and our program does meet the criteria, it has a negative effect on our program survey results. In our partnership, we encourage you to look at “how” we actually do meet this criteria because every negative mark does affect our results and we desire for parents to only truly mark that which they know and desire to be heard.

Please feel free to read each question and review the survey results. Underneath each question is a response from PCP in the event that parents are wondering how we evidence the met criteria. Please let our office or leadership team know if you have any questions. Thank you for your dedication and efforts to helping make Peñasquitos Christian Preschool a wonderful and enriching environment for young children.

Blessings,

Peñasquitos Christian Preschool

How we meet this criteria:

Transitions begin with the parent becoming informed and prepared about what will happen and how to support their child. Therefore a lot of time and effort is put into the orientation process, building a relationship and supporting the entire family. In regards to transitioning the student, we offer a meet and greet time which are called “school visits”. For our youngest of students or for those who are having difficulty transitioning, there is always flexibility and individualized plans created for extra time and care for the transitional process.

There are a lot of formal and informal ways in which we communicate. Lead Teachers and Associate Teachers take turns greeting parents/students daily at drop-off and pick-up at the door. This is a face-to-face greeting. Teachers also have a regular communication with parents via email. This was implemented recently in the school year 2015-2016 and is a wonderful technology that we now have access. Teachers share a group E-news with the entire class that includes photos of the children at work/play. We have set aside two times per year for formal conferencing but this is not the only times that we meet with parents. We encourage parents to take full advantage of the many opportunities to build a relationship with their classroom teacher.

Our school is not required to meet this criteria because we do not serve infants. However we believe we serve a young enough age group, (our Beginners class ages 2.5-3.5) and we choose to meet this criteria voluntarily.  We send home a daily sheet reflecting on what students ate, their bathroom experiences, their playtime and their mood to better communicate with parents and caregivers. We do this because at this young age, students are still learning to communicate. In the older grades, Explorer and Kinder Readiness; students are supported in communicating directly with their parents and the transition with teacher-to parent on a more verbal/weekly occurrence takes place (rather than daily).
