Hello Families! Welcome to our 64th year at Tiny Tots! =)
Hope you had a fabulous summer vacation!
Yay!!! Preschool begins TOMORROW!!!! I'm sooooo excited!!
So many people to thank for fixing up the school...painting, cleaning, organizing, gardening, sewing, & decluttering!
It looks fantastic!!!! Thank you so much!
Every weekend, I will type up this email & send to you...
Please read the entire TT Weekly Memo, as it should answer many of your questions =)
Attached are the "Work day Job Cards" & "End of Day Duties"...they have been updated since last year!!
There will also be a set in your NEW Work Apron on your workday!
Feel free to contact me ANYtime if you need help...and any of the Board Members are available to you too!
The First Day(s) of Preschool are here! woo hoo! =) So super exciting!!!
Thank you for making Tiny Tots Parent Participation Preschool a part of your life!
It is an amazing, warm, loving, caring, nurturing place that will feed every part of your child's needs (& yours) in these precious early years.
Never be afraid to ask to give hugs or receive hugs! =)
Please remember these important things:healthy snack, water bottle, full change of clothes, extra shoes...all labeled with your child's name please.
...bring family photos(s) for our Family Tree and a 4x6 picture for your child's indoor cubby too!
*Please also bring a snack & water bottle for YOURSELF! =)
**Only wear clothes that you do not mind having creative fun in! (painting, mud puddles, etc)
***You and your child will enjoy learing through play better, if you are wearing comfortable clothing!
****It is OK and extremely typical for a Working Parent and their Child to wear the exact same outfit or two everytime they attend TT. =)
During the first 30-45 days of preschool, we have many things to learn (as adults),
and the children will have their brains fully aware & will be busy becoming accustom to routines, making friends, building confidence, verbalizing, sharing, socializing, learning self help skills & more....Please come with an open-mind regarding expectations...it takes time for all of us to fall into place =)
Let's all remember these things while being a part of our childrens' environment-
be on time, be relaxed, be understanding, be patient, be kind, be gentle, be loving, be compasstionate, be consistant, be clear, be calm, be quiet, be respectful, be open-minded...
Please know that I will put out a monthly "curriculum" calendar,
I will also be reminding you of enrollment forms due, and other things during the first month-especially if you missed orientation.
CHECK OUT THE WEBSITE...IT ALSO CONTAINS EVERYTHING HERE!! =)
*Every family will need to turn in some type of form to me by October 4, 2013...I will be notifying you of which form(s) that are due in individual emails over the next couple of days.
**Your child will not be able to attend TT after10.4.2013 if the forms requested are not complete. ***Forms go directly to me =)
***Please hand me your forms, but let me go through them with you after school is over, if you have any questions.
In case you are not able to work on your workday, you will need to find a TRADE OR SUB: until we establish a “Trade/Sub List”, please call me directly to help you find one. There will be a sign up at TT to add your name, number, & availability to help others when in need.
