"Play is the highest expression of human development in childhood, for it alone is the free expression of what is in a child's soul." Fredrich Fruebel
Things to remember:
-Please don't forget to sign your child in and out in the morning and afternoon. In the morning we just need the time. In the afternoon we need time and signature please. If you are sending someone else to pick up your child please remind them of this.
-If your child is going to be absent please call the school and let us know! Or if you know in advance (doctor appts, vacations etc) please let the teacher know! Written notice is best.
-While we do take precautions please remember this is a preschool class and we do get messy! It's the best way to learn and explore! Don't send your child to school in their best clothing (except for picture day).
-Please only 1 stuffed animal/doll at school for rest time and no more than 1 blanket (not including the crib sheet for the mats). Any more than that and we run out of room to store it! Any other toys must stay at home.
