Tips for the Beginning of Preschool

The start of a new school year is exciting, but it can be especially intimidating for preschoolers. Here are some suggestions to help your child adjust.

  • Attend the Fall Open House on Friday, August 26 between 9:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m. so they can meet their teacher and see the classroom and the school.
  • Make back-to-school time fun by taking your child to choose new clothes, shoes, or a backpack.
  • Allow plenty of time to get ready for school in the morning. A calm experience at home can ease the transition at school.
  • Give your child a small photograph of your family to take along.
  • You know your child best. You will know what your child needs to make it a great preschool experience.

Also, here are a few pointers for parents.

  • Please arrive no more than 5 minutes early unless it is your parent-help day. Remain in the classroom until parent-helpers have arrived. This will reassure your child and put them at ease with their surroundings. Feel free to stay until the teacher starts class.It is important to pick up your child on time to give them security that you will return at the end of class.
  • Each child has a cubby in the classroom. Please help your child find it and store their belongings there. This is their special spot in the classroom. Check the cubby after class for school information and your child’s work.

Scholastic Book Orders

Each month you have an opportunity to purchase affordable books for your child through Scholastic. It is a great program and each book you purchase earns points for Community Preschool to purchase educational materials and books for the classrooms.

Go to scholastic.com/readingclub and create an account with the code GWCML. If you prefer, you can complete a paper order and turn it in at preschool. If you have any questions please contact Ms. Tammy.

Our orders will resume once school begins in September.

Second Quarter Tuition Due Friday, September 23

Tuition for the second quarter is due by Friday, September 23, 2016. Please place your tuition payment in the Treasurer’s lock box, located on the northwest wall in the main school hallway. Make checks payable to “Community Preschool” and add your child’s name and class in the memo of the check to ensure correct credit to your account.

Click here to visit the Tuition and Schedule page and find the tuition amount for your child’s class.

Contact the treasurer Emily M. with any questions about tuition. If you are having difficulty with paying tuition according to the schedule, please contact us immediately. We are willing to work with you, but it is best to have a plan before tuition is due and late fees are incurred.
