Family Involvement

Family Share Program

Family support and participation is a critical facet of Discovery’s program. Participation comes in many shapes and forms, from helping with field trips to handling facility maintenance issues. Discovery’s Family Share Program formalizes this relationship by intentionally providing families with opportunities to participate in the life of the center and the care and education of their children.

Benefits from this involvement are many, both for the center’s budget, and the children’s self-esteem. Relationships between staff and families become stronger as all work together to create the best possible place for children to play and learn. There are a wide variety of projects and opportunities throughout the year that can fit most schedules, skills, and interests. Upon enrolling, families will fill out a “Family Share Preferences” form where they can indicate what types of projects they are interested in (if any) or if they have any handy skills or special talents to offer. We require 15 hours annually.
