We believe that the most effective care and education of children requires regular and open communication between parents and teachers. Teachers record information on details of each child's day to share with parents. Parent-Teacher Conferences are held quarterly in the Infant Room and twice a year in the older rooms. If you have particular concerns about your child's development or their care, you may request a conference at any point in the year. The Director is also available as needed.

BITC invites parents to become involved in our program. The Center welcomes current parents to speak with the teacher to arrange a time to visit. We welcome you to share your talent or interest, to bake muffins, or just spend a little time visiting in your child's classroom. There are opportunities to be involved in the classroom community by assisting with important tasks as well, such as repairing a seam on a doll's dress or helping to organize a family event.

All of us at BITC value parental involvement in the life of the Center. We strive to create an atmosphere that encourages communication. Your ideas, questions, concerns and support are important.

BITC hosts several family social occasions throughout the year. Parents have little time to meet and socialize with staff and other parents during the busy workweek, and the opportunity to relax and share parent talk and a meal is welcome.
