Established in 1952, Redwood Parents Nursery School (RPNS) is a non-profit, parent-education, cooperative preschool in Redwood City.
At RPNS, children have an opportunity to learn through play with a broad selection of hands-on experiences and materials. The children participate in large group, small group, and free play activities with an emphasis on free play. We strive to provide a place where children develop their self-esteem as they participate in an environment that encourages and respects their independence and capabilities in physical, social, and emotional development. We believe this is the foundation for personal success and academic achievement in years to come.
The staff and I are looking forward to starting our year together. Next week you should be attending your Night Class Orientations and Class Conferences will begin. Please make sure you have contacted your teacher to schedule your Teacher, Parent and Child Conference. This is a special time for your teacher to meet your child and share important information with you and your child. Please only bring the class child along with you unless you have another adult present to watch your other children outside. Children of any age may not be left outside without adult supervision. Night Class Orientations are mandatory for anyone working in the classroom more than one time during the school year. If you will be having a spouse or Grandparent work in the classroom they must attend this event even if they have worked in the classroom in the past, each year attending Orientation is mandatory for all classroom workday adults.
Attached please find the updated copies of our RPNS ByLaws, Rules & Procedures and Orientation Book. These documents will also be available on our website rpns.org and on MemberHub, our new RPNS App. This new app is a wonderful way to communicate with other parents in your classes. Also all important information and documents will be available on MemberHub. You should have received an email from Christine Schneider explaining how to become a member of this group.
The staff and board are working very hard over the next few weeks to get school ready. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact your teacher or myself at email@example.com, or at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 650-817-5612. I will be out of town from 8/21-8/27 but will be checking my email.
