Do you remember your first day at preschool? It’s a big deal!
We want to do everything we can to make your child’s beginning here as smooth as possible. The parent orientation on Monday, August 29th (6:30 pm) is designed to fill you in on specifics. Remember, this meeting is for parents only. If you haven’t yet visited the program with your child, we encourage you to come to the preschool walk-through on Tuesday, August 30th between 9:00 and 11:00 am. Your child may look around the classroom, get acquainted with teachers, and enjoy a popsicle on the playground. Your child will also receive a welcome postcard from the teachers.
Transitions can be tricky! Before the program starts, you may want to read a few books with starting-school themes and discuss preschool routines. Our preschool day begins at 9:00 am. Arriving on time and walking in with other children helps ease anxiety and separation. When it is time to leave, please don’t slip out when your child isn’t looking. Your child needs to know when you are going and be able to say goodbye. Don’t worry. We’ll take it from there 🙂
About this blog
Welcome to my running online dialog on matters of our life together in faith community at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church—where the grace of Christ Jesus our Lord engages each of us and, in turn, sends us out to engage others with that grace as well. I look forward to learning and growing together.
