Getting Ready For School...

It's exciting and scary at the same time both for children and parents.  On the Beginning of Year Forms, Files & Supply List page, we have attached information that may be helpful to you as you prepare for the beginning of school.  Feel free to download any of those files.
Also here are a couple of suggestions to help the transition to preschool go smoothly.
  • Invite a friend or two over to play with your child
  • Begin to follow a regular bedtime routine at least one week prior to beginning class
  • Introduce new and various foods for your family to try, encouraging at least one bite
  • Talk about things that might be new at school
  • Visit the local library and participate in Storytime or the Summer Reading Program
