During the peak of COVID-19, for two years, Brooklyn Preschool of Science had very limited familial interaction. In September 2022, we went back to pre-COVID policies, which was wonderful. I think families realized how much they missed the level of engagement that comes with being part of a school. I felt like they missed the ability to see the school in person and attend events, Character Day, parades and functions. I believed that they missed that bond between school and families as much as the staff did.
Indeed, our families have been eager to return. Looking back at this year, I don’t think I’ve had a year when we’ve had such amazing, engaged families. Here’s how we continue to build that connection.
