First Week of School
If you are enrolled in an Early Head Start/Head Start program, the teacher and possibly the teacher aide will schedule a visit with you in your home. This visit will help your child see the connection between home and school. Home visits are scheduled twice a year for children in the center-based program and once a week for children enrolled in the home-based program.
“Slow Start” & Classroom Orientation
Your teachers will contact you regarding the classroom orientation and the “Slow Start” process for your child’s program. You will meet the preschool staff, complete a few more forms, and learn about classroom policies. Your child will meet the teachers, tour the classroom and playground, and experience the exciting program while in a small group. This slow start will help to ensure a positive adjustment to preschool for your child.
