Parent Committee Survey

The support and involvement of parents makes each child's experience at the WRC Nursery School the best that it can be!  We encourage all parents to become a part of the Parent Committee.  The Parent Committee is made up of all parents at the WRC Nursery School who wish to participate. The committee helps plan, coordinate and execute our fundraisers, mission projects and enrichment events for the children and the entire family.  All of these events contribute to the warm and nurturing environment of our school.   With the money raised, we purchase items needed for the school such as playground equipment, technology items and security upgrades.
