Preschool Update - August 16, 2022

Dear Families,

Welcome to Bulldog Buddies! We are so glad that you are here. In our preschool, children will discover and learn through play, investigation, and projects that build on their natural curiosity. Throughout the day, children will participate in large group, small group and individualized learning activities. They will also spend time outside and enjoy a snack together.

During the first several weeks of school, we will focus on building our classroom community.

Children will:

  • Learn the names of friends, teachers, and areas of the classroom

  • Talk about what to do if they feel sad or scared being away from home

  • Learn about classroom rules and how to follow a daily schedule

  • Learning how to make friends and how to participate in a group will be another focus throughout preschool.

We look forward to sharing more information about our classrooms in the coming weeks. Families will receive a monthly newsletter from our administrative team and weekly posts from your child's instructor. Please contact us if you have any questions.

Parent Communication

Our instructors will be utilizing See Saw to connect with families as we begin the school year. Please look for information sent home with your child about how to sign up. See Saw is a very user friendly application that allows you to receive information directly from your child's instructor instantly. Please let your child's instructor know if you need help with this application. Click on the link below for more information about See Saw.
