Each newly enrolled Early Childhood School student can expect a 30-60 minute visit from one of our lead teachers. This is an opportunity for one of our teachers to get to know and bond with your child on his/her terms in his/her regular environment. We believe home visits help with the transition and anxiety when your child comes to the Early Childhood School for the first time. Home visits occur in July and August.
PIN stands for Parent Information Night. The Early Childhood School hosts PIN before school starts. It is an opportunity for you to meet other Early Childhood School parents, get to know all of the teachers, ask questions, and learn more about the schedule, policies, and fun things planned for the year.
Every morning, one of our teachers will greet your child but we do ask that you walk your child to the door. For pick-up, please park your car and pick your child up at the door. We invite you to come in and see how your child is thriving at the Early Childhood School. This is also a great opportunity to connect with your child’s teachers, see how your child’s day was, and ask any questions you may have.
Also: We have an open-door policy: parents can come in anytime throughout the day.
We ask that you send in a spare change of clothes and shoes at the beginning of the school year. These items will be kept at the bottom of your child’s cubby in case of an accident. If your child does have an accident, we help him/her become more independent by changing him/herself. However, we are always here to assist if necessary. Above all, accidents happen—it’s O.K.!
