Parents are an integral part of Tender Roots.  The combination of being a cooperative school and having a Reggio Emilia program, makes our parents as equally important, as our staff.  Our parents are heavily involved and have the opportunity to shape the future of the school.  Many of our parents, just as our children, find that Tender Roots is where their long-term neighborhood friendships take root.

Tender Roots believes in educating the whole family.  We strive to take good care of our children, as well as our parents.  We offer parents support in many ways; from answering questions about parenting, to helping them understand their children as learner, to individualized support in how to navigate the preschool process when they move on.  Our parents know their questions are always welcomed and that we enjoy helping them.
