Working with your child

To help your child start adjusting and making the transition smoother for them, please ensure your child has developed the skills listed below prior to starting the school year.

  1. Can verbally state his/her first and last name (no nicknames)
  2. Can perform self-help skills, including eating and toileting.
  3. Can snap and unsnap his.her pants (elastic waist bands are a good alternative)
  4. Is able to share and play cooperatively with others.
  5. Can be away from parents a minimum of 3 consecutive hours.
  6. Can stay awake for at least 3 hours and does not need a nap.

It is important to work with your child at home so that the concepts taught at school are reinforced. For the beginning of the school year, we recommend working with your child on knowing their age, teachers' names, shapes, colors and counting to 10.

Parental involvement is vital to our students success. We want all parents to feel they are informed of each students progress.
