- We realize this may be the first experience your child will have away from Mom and Dad. This gives us the special privilege of making your child feel happy, safe and secure in a classroom. We have experience in handling these separation anxieties. The best procedure is to hand them to us and leave in a timely manner lingering only makes the situation worse if they cry, it is actually harder on you than it is them. We will give lots of understanding and cuddles until they feel safe enough to begin play. This anxiety can last days or a couple of weeks be assured we have compassion for our little ones. It is important we keep our lines of communication open this year. Let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
- We have lots new skill to learn this year: using glue, scissor skills, following directions, sharing toy and book with new friends, arts and crafts and skill building games. This will be a busy year for your first time student.
Oh, yes! It’s time to begin thinking about the start of preschool.
The floors have been stripped and waxed for fall. The teachers will be returning August 28th to prepare their classrooms for the new school year which starts Tuesday, September 5th for the four and five day students and Wednesday, September 6th for three day a week students. See you soon.
Open House is Thursday, August 31, 2017
Please come for a short visit anytime between 10:00 a.m. 12:00 p.m. (so students may meet their Teachers and see their classroom). This is also a good time for parents that haven’t decided on a preschool.
Parent Orientation is Thursday, August 31, 2017
from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
Please do not bring children (their special time is in the morning at open house) this is a time for parents to focus on school rules and ask questions. It is not necessary for both parents to attend this meeting, that way one parent can stay home and watch the children. You should bring the parent handbook that was in the registration packet, we will be referring to it during this time. The teachers will have hand outs and tote bags when the meeting moves to the individual classrooms, please be sure to get a tote for your child.
All health forms are due at Orientation
They must be filled in and signed by a physician with the examination date, physician’s address and phone number. These forms are required by the State of Ohio Licensing and a child cannot begin the first day of school at Spin-Kemp without a medical in his or her file.
We have a couple of staff offering to add days to their work week if anyone wants more than three day for their Early Beginner or Middler. Let us know at open house if this is something you would like to do. We realize not everyone wants their child to spend that much time away from home. It is just an opportunity to add to their learning and social skills.
As of June 1st, our classes are almost full for the coming school year. This is a friendly reminder if you haven’t made up your mind to register your child your time is running out. When we reach our licensing capacity we cannot accept any more students even if they are alumni.
