NAEYC Family Survey Info
Thank you to all of our families who participated in the NAEYC Family Survey!
The full results are in the spreadsheet.
We had 17 out of 18 surveys returned, or a 94% response rate. Our overall pass rate is 90%, placing us in NAEYC’s “commendable” or top 25% of programs! (We have improved since the fall when we last sent this survey out -- our pass rate then was 80%.)
We scored at least 75% “percent yes,” i.e. the pass rate for criteria the survey is looking at, on 20 of the 22 questions, which are not included here. (Question 23-24 do not pertain to us as we are not an infant or toddler program.) For questions that did not meet the pass rate, we offer answers to them below.
Results of questions with under 75% “percent yes” responses:
(Note: if an answer is left blank, it is calculated as a “no” response. “Not applicable” responses are not calculated in the final pass rate.)
Q8. For families who speak a language other than English at home: the teacher and I discuss the language used to teach my child.
Yes: 4 (67%) No: 1 (17%) Don’t know: 1 (17%) N/A: 11
A. The program handbook details a variety of ways parents can be involved in our program and with their child’s learning and states that “The FRC will provide a translator if needed” and to contact the Head Teacher to arrange translation services if needed. Intake interviews (meeting new families), office communications with families, and all daily instructions/activities in the preschool classroom take place in English.
(Note: language barriers, combined with a radically-altered pick-up and drop-off protocol in accordance with the district’s COVID-19 policies, can mean that sometimes things literally AND figuratively get lost in translation. We will be mindful to discuss language preferences with all families going forward.)
Q18. I am provided with a translator when needed.
Yes: 3 (60%) No: 1 (20%) Don’t know: 1 (20%) N/A: 12 (not calculated)
A. The program handbook states that “The FRC will provide a translator if needed” and to contact the Head Teacher to arrange translation services. The Parent Educator is also available to help coordinate translation services if necessary.
