Parent Feedback and Participation

Programs welcome parents through an open door policy, and we believe that a strong partnership with families is essential to a strong and successful program. Parents may provide feedback through a variety of ways to include directly to the program managers or by using one of the kiosks in the lobby to access the Interactive Customer Evaluation system. This is also available online at All parents are also welcome to attend monthly Parent Advisory Council (PAC) meetings that are generally held the first week of every month. Suggestions for agenda items are welcome; please provide these in advance of the meeting when possible.

Child Youth and School Services also has a Parent Participation Program in which participants may earn points through volunteering in program activities for which they earn points toward an eventual 10 percent discount off monthly tuition payments. Please see program directors for details.
