Aidan and His Dad Matthew Visiting His Class

♥️We wanted to update our Community Preschool families on one of our own, the Dillon Family. Their son, Aidan is in our T/TH 3s class and was recently diagnosed with Leukemia. A chemo basket will be in the hall at preschool to collect items and monetary donations to help the Dillon family during these heartbreaking days. Aidan also has an older sister who would probably enjoy some things she could do with her brother while he is in the hospital.
Donations for the chemo basket can be dropped off, checks can be written out to the Dillon family and cash can be handed into the Treasurer's box.
Please keep the Dillon Family in your thoughts and let's come together to support this family in their trying time.

[/cs_column][/cs_row]

Thank You From Aidan & His Family

To all our Friends at Community Preschool,

We are incredibly thankful to be a part of such a great family that collectively stepped up when our family was hurting. We can’t express how grateful we are for the enormous outpouring of love and support you have all given us! In addition to the supportive cards/donations for our family, the beautiful blankets, fun toys, activities and coloring supplies for Aidan, his big sister Brooke also expressed her gratitude for also keeping her in your thoughts with a wonderful gift bag full of fun! The impact Community Preschool has had on us is immeasurable and it wouldn’t be the same without all of you. Thank you for everything!
  With appreciation,
  The Dillon Family
Matt, Jennifer, Brooke and Aidan

Dearest families and friends,

Our family has suffered a tremendous shock this week. Our daughter, Audrey, was diagnosed with inoperable brain cancer. She will begin a treatment of chemo and radiation to try to control the tumor, but it is incurable. We are not sure of anything at this time, but I am sure I will need to take days off during the coming months. Our substitute list includes several wonderful, loving teachers who will take the best care of your children when I need to be gone. We so appreciate the heartfelt support, love and encouragement from everyone. The future looks dark, but your wonderful shining lights of love will carry us through this bleak time. Thank you for everything!!

The Martinez Family

Dear Families,

Mrs. Martinez's daughter will be starting treatment very soon and we would love to rally together and make a treatment basket for her. The basket will consist of a variety of gift cards, books and items to keep her comfortable during treatments and after. If you would like to contribute to this basket you can Venmo Ellen DeVilbiss, our 4's Coordinator, @Ellen-DeVilbiss, you may need Ellen's last four digits of her phone number for Venmo (8584) to donate. Another option is to bring cash in an envelope with "Chemo Basket" written on it to the Treasurer's box inside the school. We will stop taking donations for the basket on Friday, October 21st. All extra funds will be collectively used for a financial gift to the family

We are also organizing another fundraiser that will give money directly to Audrey and her family to help support them during this challenging time. There will be more news about this in the coming weeks. With the holidays soon approaching, we want to make sure they have everything they would need. 

If you would like to help them with a meal, Mrs. Martinez's other daughter, Teresa created a Meal Train. Here is the link. mealtrain.com/4mom37

Lastly, if you would like to bless Mrs. Martinez or Audrey with an encouraging note, we will have notecards and a basket available on the front table Monday morning. Feel free to write words of encouragement that they can read during these difficult days ahead. If children want to draw a special picture, they can do that as well. We will have this out for a few weeks and can deliver as they come in. 

If you have any questions at all, please email Ellen DeVilbiss at fourscoordinator@communitypreschool.org.

Thank you for all your love and support,

Community Preschool Board Members

    New Monday/Wednesday 3s Class with Ms. Hanna!

    Because of a long waitlist of students for our 3s class, we’re opening another! This class will meet on Mondays and Wednesdays from 9:00–11:30 a.m. Children must be 3 by October 1 to enroll. The class will be taught by long-time parent, board member, and teaching substitute, Ms. Hanna!

    Hanna Copeland has a bachelor's degree in agricultural business and recently completed her early childhood teaching license. She and her husband Alan have five kids, all of whom have attended Community Preschool.

    Please help us in welcoming Ms. Hanna to her new role at Community Preschool!

      Welcome to a New Year of Preschool! In-Person Classes Begin on Tuesday, September 8!

      We are so happy to announce that we have been cleared by Larimer County Health and Environment and our state Licensing Specialist from the Colorado Office of Early Childhood to open our doors again in September and welcome back all of our wonderful families! Our teachers and board of parent volunteers have been working hard to put new procedures in place to ensure the safety of our students and staff. While a few additional procedures need to be followed, we remain committed and most concerned with providing our young students with the nurturing and stimulating environment that is so important for their first adventure in education. These are temporary changes, and we plan on returning to our regular schedule when possible.

      Drop-off – Parents will meet their child’s teacher outside the playground gate. Children will need a temperature check (100.3 degrees or lower). Each class will meet separately outside.

      Snack Time – For now, we will need parent helpers to bring individually-wrapped, prepackaged snacks when they parent help.

      Classrooms – We will need to limit table activities to 4 children per table. Additional sanitizing of surfaces and items will take place during class. Our teachers will help keep large groups of children from gathering in one area.

      Pick-up – Children will walk outside with their teacher to their parents.

      Parent Helpers – We would like to have the same helpers aid on consecutive days as much as possible to limit exposure. We realize this may not work for all families, and we are happy to help work out alternate days. Before entering the preschool, parent helpers will also need their temperatures taken. While in the preschool, please social distance from other adults.

      Masks – Following the guidelines of  the Colorado Office of Early Childhood, students, parent helpers, and teachers will all wear masks. We know this may be difficult, especially if your child hasn't been wearing one. To help them prepare, please start slowly having them wear a mask and build the habit over time.

      Hand Washing – Children will wash their hands after coming inside, before snack, and after using the restroom as usual, but will include more frequent and longer hand washing.

      Isolation – If a child becomes ill, we will isolate that child in the hallway and notify the parent immediately.

      We are grateful for your patience and understanding while we develop these new procedures. We will continue to work closely throughout the year with our licensing specialist and the Health Department to make alterations as conditions change.  Please, do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns. We have missed our fabulous Community Preschool families and can’t wait to see you!

      We are looking forward to a great 2020–2021 school year!
