Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! We look forward to a wonderful year with you and your child. There is much behind-the-scenes work to prepare for a successful school year and we work hard to insure a great school year for all! The teachers and parents must communicate and work together for the completion of this goal.
Your child’s preschool experience sets the stage for their success later in “big” school. There are several things that you can do to help your child succeed. Have your child attend regularly, except when ill. Bring them to school on time, so that they can begin the day with the rest of their classmates. Take an interest in what is brought home and discuss the work and activities of the day. LISTEN, LISTEN, LISTEN! Your child will benefit and so will you. By listening, you will develop a relationship with your child based on really knowing who they are and what they need. Talk to the teacher about your child, but please, NEVER discuss your child in his or her presence. Schedule conferences if needed, and attend the one scheduled by the teacher. If anything upsets you or your child, please report it to the teacher or the director as soon as possible. To ensure the best day possible for your child, make sure they have plenty of sleep, a good breakfast, and positive reinforcements from you about school and the commitment to learning.
This handbook is your guide to our policies and procedures. Please read it thoroughly and keep it in a handy place for easy reference. Please feel free to call the Preschool/Kindergarten Office with any questions you might have.
Thank you for being a part of our program and for letting us be an important part of your child’s life! We look forward to seeing you and hearing from you on a regular basis. Together, we can provide a wonderful experience for your child as they begin their life of learning and growing.
