How We Communicate

The center directors and your child’s teacher are always available to talk. Discussions about your child’s day and how he is developing in the program are what our teachers look forward to. If a particular situation arises and a conference is required we would be happy to schedule a conference or a meeting at your convenience. In addition, our staff can be contacted via telephone or email.

Working and communicating with parents is essential. Helping your child become a lifetime learner is our goal and by partnering with you we can give your child exactly what he needs.

KKLC maintains an open door policy. You are always welcome to come in and speak with our administrative staff and/or our teachers the old-fashioned way, face-to-face conversation and follow-up. If you can’t make it to the center, every classroom has a telephone and our teachers can be reached throughout the day.

Together, we’ll keep all the lines of communication open, and together we’ll help your child get off to a great start in life.
