Theme 1 Ready for School

Children will learn all about their new school and making
new friends. We will focus on cooperation and getting along with others, as classroom routines and expectations of school are reinforced. 


Here are a few special ways you can reinforce at home what children will be learning.

• Establish routines that will help your child to be attentive in school, such as getting plenty of sleep, eating a healthy breakfast, and being ready on time.

• Ask the names of your child’s teachers and classmates.

• Talk about the school schedule and sequence of activities during the school day.

• Practice safety rules to use when going to school and returning home every day. Most of all, promote cooperation at home every day, which will help your child make a smooth and positive transition to school.
