We know that there is a lot on the minds of Parents and always welcome their inquiries. If you have any questions that are not covered within our policy section please contact us, we are always happy to speak with parents directly!
Ways Parents Can Help
Prepare your child in advance of arriving at school that you will be leaving him/her at their classroom door and that you will be returning at a specified time. When you bring your child to school, please try to leave the building as soon as your child is under the supervision of the teacher, especially during the first weeks of enrollment.
Help your child to attend regularly. Children do best on a regular routine. Teach your child self-reliance by encouraging him/her to do some things for him/herself. Allow him/her plenty of time to accomplish the task. Teach him/her to put on, take off and hang up clothes put away his/her toys, eat regularly and properly, and establish regular toilet and sleeping habits.
Read to, talk with, and listen to your child. Teach your child his/her full name, his/her age, names of parents, address, telephone number and the name of family doctor.
Appreciate your child’s art work he/she brings home. It is his/her work, not a pattern or touched up by the teacher. Display it on the refrigerator door to let him/her know how proud you are of his/her work.
Confer with the teacher about your child, but refrain from discussing the problems that may arise in his presence. Report any upsetting experiences which you think will help the teacher understand your child better. Notify the school of any situation at home which could affect the child’s behavior.
Reinforce these principles:
Must listen for short periods of time.
Must follow simple instructions.
Should use quiet voices indoors.
Must come when called.
Must refrain from doing anything that will hurt himself or others.
Take time to listen to what your child has to say!
Thank you again for giving us the opportunity to care for your child. We realize that we need to work together in order to meet the academic, emotional, social, and spiritual needs of your child. We look forward to working with you to provide an environment in which your child can grow and thrive during the time they spend here. We encourage your participation in enforcing the principles and curriculum taught here at First Academy Preschool.
