The First Academy Preschool Blog, Week of August 3

IMPORTANT EVENT DATES FOR  AUGUST & SEPTEMBER

Parents, please take a moment to mark your calendars. The following are important dates that you do not want to miss:

Message From Mrs. Grayson Merritt,  Preschool Principal

We are so excited to welcome you back to school!!  It is so hard to believe summer is over and we are back in full swing!!  We had an amazing Meet The Teacher last Friday and are well into our first week of school.

Helpful Reminders:

*Just a reminder that morning drop off is from 9:00am-9:10am.  This time is set by teacher so that she can greet your child and welcome them to class. At 9:15, the teacher begins her circle time and is helping your sweet child to feel safe, loved and ready to learn.  When children are dropped after the set drop off and at later times in the morning, it disrupts the children in the class and at times upsets the children in the class because it reminds them that their mommies and daddies aren’t with them at school.   The children who are already in the class become confused and upset when they see mommies and daddies come as well as it is much harder on your sweet little friend to come into the class once they begin the day’s activities.  We understand that things come up and you won’t always be able to be here right at 9:00 but it is truly helpful to your child for you to be here as close to drop off if possible.

To help alleviate anxiety in our sweet friends already settled into their class and  have been dropped off, if you arrive to drop off after 9:15, Miss Jenna will greet you at the lobby and then bring your child to their class in the 2’s and 3’s as to not disturb circle time and the teacher since they will be working with their students.  

*Please be mindful that during the day your teacher is busy keep your little one safe so please understand that if you text your teacher she is not able to respond to your text until after school.  The teachers are available to reply to text and emails both before and after school. If you need to reach your teacher or the preschool in the event of an emergency, please call the TFA Preschool Office (407) 206-8704.

*Please also remember to be mindful of sending items in your child’s lunch that can be potential chocking hazards.  If you choose to send hot dogs, grapes or olives, please cut them into quarters so that we can be sure that the food is easy for your child to swallow.
