Dear Preschool/Kindergarten Families,
Welcome!! The first day of school is rapidly approaching. Wednesday, August 19th will be upon us before you know it. The first day of school is an exciting milestone in your child’s life. Your child is embarking on a journey that will lead them on many roads of discovery and learning. As wonderful as this new experience may be, it can also be quite stressful for the young child. New situations and change can, at times, be unsettling for all of us. For many children this may be their first experience of separation from parents or caregivers at home. It is common for even the most outgoing child to be anxious the first day of school.
Below are some suggestions for assisting your child during this time of transition. Please know that the preschool staff will be available to provide support and assistance; making your child’s first school days happy days.
Prepare your child for the new school experience by explaining what to expect. Answer all questions directly and honestly. Clearly state to your child where you will be and when you will return. It may also be helpful to discuss what will happen when you are reunited.
Convey a positive attitude. Young children are aware of your feelings. Your enthusiasm will assure the child that school can be a fun and exciting place.
Establish a routine involving the night before a school day as well as morning preparation. Rituals and routines will add predictability and help provide the child with comfort.
Place a photograph of your family in your child’s backpack. Explain that it is okay to feel sad and that pulling out the family photo from time to time will add a measure of comfort.
Maintain a clear goodbye routine. We strongly recommend utilizing our carpool drop-off and pick-up service. Long goodbyes serve only to prolong sadness and heighten anxiety.
Please plan to attend Parent Orientation/Meet-The-Teacher night on Monday, August 10th from 5:30-6:30 pm. This is a fun evening and allows the child to meet both teachers and new classmates. Parents can pick up all pertinent information i.e., Parent Handbook, calendar of events, carpool tags at this time.
We are looking forward to a spectacular school year.
Lauren Becker and Linda Kempf
