“You are

your child’s

first teacher.”


Par­ents and fam­ily mem­bers are cen­tral to Ft. George. From vol­un­teer­ing in the class­room to par­tic­i­pat­ing in the gov­ern­ing body they are an essen­tial ele­ment in the organization.

The Pro­gram pro­vides par­ents the oppor­tu­nity to improve their par­ent­ing skills.

The Social Ser­vice staff devel­ops an ongo­ing plan with par­ents based upon inter­views that enables par­ents to be true advo­cates for their families.

Par­ents are involved actively in deci­sions about pro­gram oper­a­tions both directly and through their elected par­ent representatives.

Par­ents vol­un­teer in the classroom.

Par­ents attend Class Meetings.
