Getting Ready for School

Here is a list of things that we work on preschool to prepare your child for kindergarten.

Although the academics are an important part of our program, we also want your child to be independent.  We work very hard with children on putting on coats, putting their projects and papers into their cubby, working puzzles and activities on other own and so many little things that happen in our classroom help your child become an independent student. 

How to help your child be independent---

B is for Boredom


There has been a seismic shift in the summer.  Your child feels it.  Store entryways welcome customers with markers, crayons, pencils and glue.  Television commercials have smiling children in new clothes and your child knows...school is just around the corner.  It has happened. The end of summer...the start of school draws near.  Boredom.  There are thousands of ideas and articles about how to keep your child busy at the end of the summer.  Here are few that worked for me and my boys.  So, put on your pajamas for a day.  Hop in the car with some friends and picnic.  Explore new parks and new community pools.  End your child's summer with a few more adventures.

Can I Have S'More?

There is still a lot of summer left for you and your child.  I used to make these when my boys were little.  Your child can help with prep but grilling is an adult job.  When you remove from the grill, open the packet for your child.  The bananas will be hot so use caution.  It will be messy and sticky and fun so have napkins or paper towels on hand
