I run a very new, very small church preschool. As of right now I am the only person on staff and have no one to brainstorm with. My question is, how much do parents help in your program? I keep hearing parents say there needs to be more parent and community involvment. Other preschools in the area make you feel like you are a part of something. What does that mean? At your school is it mandatory for parents to participate in some way? How do i make parents feel connected? I also feel like every time I ask for a volunteer for something no one steps up but then they complain. I feel lost.
