Dear La Maternelle families,
I want to welcome all of our new and returning students and families. We are very excited to start this new school year and we look forward to a great year with your children. In a few weeks, your child will begin to have his or her first experiences with school. Your child will discover a new world, make new friends and adapt to new schedules and routines. This is an essential moment for him/her, but also for you especially if this is your first child.
Some children may need more time than others to adjust to new environments, but please know that we will do all we can do to help with the transition. We know that it is not going to be easy to say good bye on the first day of school so please read “Separation Anxiety: 15 Ways to Ease Your Child’s Fears” .
We have had an absolutely WONDERFUL summer, and we are very sad to see it end! However, Friday, August 15th will be our last day of summer camp and the school will be closed from August 18thto August 22nd. We will see everyone back at the school for our official first day of school on August 25th!
If you have any concerns regarding this transition period, please feel free to discuss this with your child’s teacher or Miss Charlotte.
