- PARENTS IN THE CLASSROOMS
- Parents are always welcome at Lily Pad. There are various opportunities to be involved in the center’s activities. Each classroom holds 2 or more events a year for parents. "Muffins with Mom" for Mother's Day and "Donuts with Dad" for Father's Day are a couple of our favorites. You may want to volunteer to drive for a field trip or join us on "Planting Day". At pick-up time your child can show you a few of the day’s favorite activities or you may want to ask the teacher a question or two.
