As a benefit for enrolling your child at Bright Beginnings Learning Center, we offer FREE Preschool, Toddler Time and Tiny Tot Classroom activities to your child or children. I will be using the curriculum I have used for many years in all classrooms of children.
Please feel free to give me a call with any questions or concerns.
How to help your child have a great classroom experience:
Daily Routine and classroom “Rules”
Please send a backpack daily. The backpack should be large enough to hold a cake pan.
Please check your child’s backpack/folder daily
Please make sure your child has their folder daily. This helps with the routine at Preschool.
Please have your child use the phrase “May I go to the bathroom” instead of potty.
Please write your child’s name on coats and backpacks
Please NO tie shoes unless your child can independently tie his or her shoes.
Monthly Calendar and Weekly Newsletters
Every month a new calendar will be sent home in your child’s folder.
Weekly parent letters are sent by email. Please let me know if your email changes or you do not have email and a paper copy will be sent home.
Your child may bring birthday treats to share with their friends.
Please be aware that all treats must be prepackaged. No Peanut/Peanut Butter
Show and Tell
Show and Tell will be held with the letter of the week or specified on the monthly calendar. This is a definite self-esteem booster and helps your child talking in front of people. Please help your child pick an appropriate item. No guns, swords ect are allowed, as well as items that may get damaged by accident.
Classroom time is held Monday - Friday, 52 weeks a year, no matter if Platte/Geddes school is a late start or cancelled. We will remain on a structured routine at BBLC.
If your child is having a hard time separating from you, please follow these tips.
Do not carry your child into daycare
Let your child be responsible for their bookbag each day
Give your child a quick kiss and a hug and leave
Do not stand at the door and peek in
Make the “Goodbye” process as short as possible.
Please let me know if your child is having any kind of anxiety about preschool. I can’t help if I don’t know
