Partnering with Children's First & Most Important Teachers
Each step of the process involving our youth is shared with the families. We believe the center of every child's success lies within their family support system. Incorporating them into the process provides families to experience the impact of our programs.
The active participation of parents/significant adults in partnership with Hamilton Wings is critical for this program’s success. Families are expected to provide support within the home that nurtures their child(ren)’s potential and complements the goals of the Hamilton Wings’ programs.
We Provide Families With:
Tools and strategies for supporting their children's talents and social, emotional, and academic development
Goal setting and reflection opportunities through workshops
Ongoing evaluations of their child's development
