The only days we close are New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. Most preschools close for: winter vacation, spring vacation, teacher workshops, teacher conferences, President’s day, MLK day, etc.
What’s your discipline policy?
Our teachers guide classroom interactions so that each child learns the value of cooperation and gains skills to solve conflicts in a positive manner. We use our best professional judgment when implementing supervision and correction. We stress positive reinforcement and redirection. We will discuss negative or disruptive behavior that persists with the parents and develop a joint plan of action. Corporal punishment is not used.
How do I prepare my child for the first day of school?
Try to visit with your child before their first day. Point out activities, toys or games that you as a parent know your child will find especially appealing. If possible have your child introduced to the teacher. In advance of your child’s first day tell your child you will be leaving and that their teacher will take care of them while you are away. Let your child know that you are looking forward to hearing about what they did and the fun they had while they were at school.
How do you recommend a parent leave their child at school?
Children do best with a predictable routine. Bring your child into the classroom and say hello to the teacher. The teacher will give you and your child a friendly greeting. If you have time it can be helpful to help your child get settled in to an activity. Sometimes a very young child has an easier transition with the help of a “lovey” from home such as a stuffed animal or special blanket. Say goodbye and perhaps some special words of encouragement, wave and maybe blow a kiss and then go. Once you say goodbye do leave right away. Parting is usually made more difficult for the child if the parent leaves and then returns. If your child cries as you leave allow the teacher to provide comfort. When you get to your destination you can always call and find out how your child is doing.
