It’s Time to Start Pre-K/VPK

Welcome to the 2019 – 2020 school year. The staff and teachers at Collage Day School are excited to have your child join us for their Pre-K year.

As the beginning of the school year approaches, your child is probably feeling many emotions, hopefully lots of excitement, but they probably have a few worries too, especially if it’s their first time in a school setting.

Starting new schools and meeting new faces can be overwhelming for some children.  Our teachers are excited to welcome your child into their classrooms and begin this journey together.  As the school year begins, your child will be learning classroom routines, they will be making many new friends, and they will be bonding with their teachers.  We would like to provide you with a few tips on how to help your child adjust to the start of the school year.

  • It is important for children to be comfortable with their surroundings. Please plan to join us for our Meet the Teachers on Thursday, August 8th.  This is an opportunity for your child to explore their preschool, their new classroom and visit with their teachers.  This day is provided to help make their transition to school personal, comfortable and pleasant.
  • Talk to your child about what to expect on their first day of school. Have your child share his or her feelings about starting school and reassure them that they are going to be safe, have lots of fun and make many new friends along the way
  • Establish bedtime routines a week or so before school begins. Making sure that your child gets a good, sound sleep ensures that he or she will have better success in school.
  • The school day begins at 8:45am. It is important for children to develop healthy habits of arriving on time for school at an early age. This gives your child time to greet his or her friends before class begins and assures that they do not miss out on any important learning activities.  Arriving on time also makes children feel good about themselves.

Thank you for choosing our preschool for your child’s early education. We look forward to a positive, exciting and rewarding school year for our children and their families.
