Children and families feel a sense of belonging where they experience an environment where they know that they have a place.

LBLC values our parent community, we have special areas called ‘parent spaces’ or parent corners in our centres. These areas have readings and information on child development, the transition to school or related topics. This will also be an opportunity for them to spend a few minutes in the morning or afternoon reading a storybook to their child, which helps the child settle down. Parents can also help contribute to the learning and development of children by sharing expectations and concerns with the teachers.
