First Day Jitters
The first days can be an anxious time for some children (and some moms and dads, too!). They walk in a new room with all of those new kids, and new grownups, and new "stuff" and maybe Mom looks a little teary-eyed that her "baby" is growing up so fast...well, it's no wonder some kids might suddenly cling to their parents and cry! Here are some tips for getting through the first few days:
Try to act confident yourself. If you seem anxious and unsure about leaving your child, your child will pick up on that and start wondering if there really is something to worry about!
Be consistent with good byes. We will greet your child and you can give kisses and say good-bye. We promise to embrace your child and help ease him/her into the classroom!
Make sure to say good-bye when you leave. Trying to "sneak out" when the child is busy and not looking sometimes makes the kids panic a few minutes later,and may make separation even more difficult the next day.
Arrive on time! It seems to be easier on most children if they arrive just before the classroom door is opened. This way they can enter the classroom with their friends! It can be much harder when they arrive after all of the other children have settled into activities.
Separation problems sometimes show up on the second or third day, just when you thought you were getting off easy! It is also common for children to have difficulties when there are major changes in the home. Let us know if there is anything happening at your house that you think is important for us to be aware of.
We are looking forward to a great year!
Our school has a nuts free policy - No nuts, peanut butter sandwiches please
Please take notes of the following things:
- Please be on time, class starts at 7:00 am and pick up at 12:00 noon sharp. Don't be late to pick up your child as we do not provide a late room, please think of how tired they must be by the afternoon. We don't want the children to hate school because they are tired of waiting for you to pick them up.
- Please send extra clothes labeled with your child's name and hand it to your class teacher.
- Please send an art apron for the children to use during painting with long sleeves. If you have dad's old shirt to use during painting will be a better option.
- Please send enough food and water to last your child throughout the day. Most classes have two breaks each day.
- Children wear school PE uniform on PE days only.
The KG1 classes have a monthly scheduled assembly. These assemblies are conducted by two hosting classes that join together to display a performance or a segment representing a topic or an event. These classes are announced on this page when the time comes close to the assembly date. The two hosting classes will ask their parents to attend the assembly. The assemblies usually take place on Thursdays at 7:30 am. The invitation is to the parents of the hosting classes only please. If you come to attend an assembly and your child's class is not the hosting class you are going to be disappointed as you will not see your child performing.
