Parent Information

GENERAL INFORMATION

The first day of preschool is a big step for you and your child to take. Being adequately prepared for this milestone is key to your child’s success. To make the transition a little easier you may want to try reading picture books about the beginning of school can help to lessen apprehensions and help your child develop positive feelings about school. Enroll in a special class prior to preschool that are designed to gradually ease the child towards independence. Classes are planned in shorten lengths of time and children get use to structured activities such as story time and following directions on a small scale. Take advantage of other opportunities to leave you child in a safe, constructive situation without you, such as a babysitter/grandparent for a short time. Do not linger when you leave your child, children can easily pick up on your hesitation or anxiety. Tell your child you will return and give them a reassuring hug and walk away. Practice speaking English at home if it is not your family’s primary language. Being on their own is sometime unsettling to a child and it only complicates the situation if they cannot understand or communicate with the teachers or other children. Toilet independence is required prior to starting preschool.

Please remember to check your child’s classroom bulletin board daily for important information

Handwriting Without Tears

Handwriting Without Tears is a program that was designed by an occupational therapist to teach children how to write without frustrating them to tears. It uses hands-on, multisensory materials and was designed in such a way that it introduces shapes, numbers, and letters in an order that matches the progression of children’s developmental abilities so that it is easier for them to practice, learn, and remember.
