- Risen Savior is accredited by both organizations. This assures parents that their child is in a developmentally appropriate program with a strong spiritual foundation. We recognize that God has given each of us individual talents and gifts. The teaching staff at Risen Savior strives to enhance these gifts by focusing on the whole child. We do this by providing age appropriate, hands-on experiences that promote growth and development in the cognitive, emotional, social, physical and spiritual domains. Risen Savior believes strongly in developmentally appropriate practice. Play is the work of the young child, yet it must be play with a purpose. Every student is observed on a daily basis so that teachers are aware of what the child is able to do independently. In the methodology first described by Vygotsky, the teachers' job is to scaffold the learning of their students. To do so, they must know what the child can do independently and know what the child can do with a little help. This knowledge assists in their lesson planning so that future activities help each child move towards independence. All of this is documented in the child's portfolio. Parents are informed of the growth and development of their child at two parent-teacher conferences held in the Fall and Spring, in addition to report cards issued each trimester. Preschool report cards are based on domains that focus on the whole child.
Are charter schools private schools? What do vouchers have to do with private schools? Some answers here.
The parent-teacher conference is a wonderful opportunity to discuss your child's progress. Make the most of it by preparing yourself both emotionally and intellectually for this special, brief time with your child's teacher.
Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
