Parent Involvement
be a part of our city kids community

parent involvement

As a small non-profit school we rely on the involvement of parents to help us succeed.   This is the foundation upon which City Kids began many decades ago, and a tradition that continues today with our strong parent community.

We strive to keep our fees low and this is only achievable with the support of our parents. There are many opportunities for parents to get involved.

The focus is very much on making each task and activity child-led and engaging their interest through play while developing, numeracy and literacy skills and their knowledge and understanding of the world.

With progression to the older preschool class, the curriculum becomes more , preparing the children for entry into primary school. The children’s play becomes more rule-oriented and develops autonomy and cooperation.

Our children leave us as confident achievers, well prepared to tackle the next steps in their education. 

parent board

City Kids is governed by a board elected from our parent community.  The board works closely with the City Kids administrative and teaching staff, who operate the school on a day-to-day basis.

The role of the Board includes ensuring the philosophy and vision of the school is achieved, fiscal management and facilitating a positive school community. The Board divides its tasks among various committees, including Fundraising, Finance    and Legal matters, Communication and Facilities Maintenance.
