Your Child's First Day and Beyond

We know that changing or starting a new school isn’t easy. A child’s first day can be filled with excitement and anxiety over the unknown. We focus on making the transition as welcoming and worry-free as possible – for your child and for you. To ensure that’s the case, here are a few things to keep in mind for your first day – and beyond.
  • Keeping your child safe: On your first day (or before), you’ll get check-in instructions for entering our secure school facility.

  • Getting you acquainted: Be sure to take a tour of your child’s classroom and get an overview of the daily routine. Visit:

    • Your child’s personal cubby – we’ll keep their personal belongings safe and place any take-home items here

    • Family Communication Center – we post lesson plans, your teacher’s name, announcements, and upcoming event info for every classroom

    • Documentation of Learning – we love watching them learn as much as you do, so we take plenty of photos of daily activities and post them around our school

    • Keeping you in the know: On day one, you’ll receive your first update about your child’s experience, plus a few photos. After that, we’ll start sending you regular reports to keep you informed and involved every day that your child is with us.


And here are a few things to keep in mind when coming to school:

  • Please dress your child in comfortable, washable, weather-appropriate play clothes (including all accessories). Note: flip-flops, sandals, and open-toe shoes not permitted.

  • For a child who will be napping, please provide a small blanket.

  • For infants, a favorite toy and a family photo to keep by the crib is a good idea.

  • For all kids, please provide one change of clothes (add your child’s first and last name on all clothing and personal items in permanent ink).


These teachers really love what they do. My children absolutely enjoyed their time here. Thanks Ladies!
