A parent/guardian wishing to learn more about Pineapple Cove Academy may stop in for a tour. We encourage your child to visit with you so he/she will be able to meet the director and teachers and see all the exciting equipment and materials at the center. During this visit you will have an opportunity to tour the school and ask any questions you may have. You will be given information and an explanation of all the policies and procedures which will assist you in selecting the best childcare center available to meet your family’s needs.

Pineapple Parent Action Team
The Pineapple Parent Action Team is comprised of parents and facilitated by PCA staff. They come together to enhance the PCA experience for their children. This committee meets briefly, monthly to plan events, discuss concerns, amend practices and fill needs with the goal of continuously enriching the PCA experience for our young ohana. During your child's time at PCA, consider being a member of the PAT and be a part of your child's educational growth and learning development. Whether you are available to attend meetings, volunteer in the classroom, on field trips and events, or if you are available via email or phone to share information with other parents and feedback to the PAT, all levels of involvement are welcome and encouraged! The diversity of minds and bodies of all backgrounds and experiences can offer our children a well balanced program to nurture and stimulate the learning atmosphere academically and socially.
