If you are observing through the two-way mirror, please do not ask for your child to be moved or for us to interfere in the natural environment at all.
Please do not initiate conversation with the children. If a child greets you, respond appropriately, of course, but do not seek to prolong the conversation. If necessary, please gently remind the children to return to their work. If you are obserivng with someone, please keep your conversation low, and to a minumum.
The directors may not be able to take time from their classroom duties to converse with you during or immediately after your observation. If questions occur to you while you are observing, please write them down on clipboard provided and leave it on the chair for the director.
