BlueSkies Parent Community


BlueSkies for Children has always been shaped by the parents who help to create a community that serves both children and parents. BlueSkies parents organize fundraising events, maintain a beautiful and functional environment for the children and staff, and organize educational, social, and  support services for families. Parents are often the best support for other parents at BlueSkies; getting involved in the community creates those connections.

To facilitate participation by working parents in the life of  BlueSkies . childcare is always provided for comittee meetings and events. Meetings include a simple meal for children and parents, and take place as soon as the children’s programs close at 6pm, so that everyone can participate and still be home in time for a snuggle before bedtime.

Parent Services Committee

In partnership with the BlueSkies administration, the Parent Services Committee acts as the hub of our vibrant parent community. The Parent Services Committee organizes social activities such as picnics and potlucks, as well as formal workshops, often bringing in experts in the field of child development. Examples of past workshops include Choosing a Kindergarten; Discipline, Development, and Daily Life; Raising Multiracial Children; and Temperament. The Parent Services Committee also organizes room parents, who welcome new parents and organize classroom gatherings.

Parent Fundraising Committee

With support from the BlueSkies Administration this committee is responsible for the Fall Mailer and the Spring Auction. These activities directly support the scholarships available at BlueSkies for Children.

Parent Building Committee

The Parent Building Committee organizes several Saturday workdays each year to paint, haul sand, refinish equipment, and generally keep the BlueSkies facilities safe and fresh.
