2-YEAR OLDS ON CHRISTMAS PROGRAM DAYS

Attention parents of two year olds. Your children are asked to come to school early for the Christmas Program on December 22nd and 23rd. Drop-off begins at 8:45 am for morning classes and 12:15 pm for afternoon classes. Programs will begin at 9:15 am and 12:45 pm.

REGISTRATION

Applications are available online for the coming year at www.wasatchpreschool.org and in the preschool office on January 1st, 2017 The deadline for registering returning students for next year is February 1st, 2017 This group of students includes all children and siblings of children already attending Wasatch Preschool this year. The deadline for new students is March 1st, 2017 We place students into available spaces in random order until all openings are taken. We notify parents of results shortly after each deadline.

Please remember: we can guarantee returning students a place in the school and usually the number of days desired but there are limited openings both morning and afternoon. Some families who want the morning classes may get an afternoon placement and others who prefer afternoon may be placed in the morning. But, you are guaranteed a place in the program. If you do not get the class you prefer contact the Preschool office to get on a wait list.

TOURS OF SCHOOL

Tell friends about our weekly tours on Tuesdays at 10:00 am and let them know that registration begins in January.

DRESS CHILDREN FOR THE COLD

We remind you again to dress your children to play outdoors. The children play outside unless the health department recommends they stay indoors because of an inversion or when snow falls from the playground roof.

DECREASE POLLUTION ON OUR PLAYGROUND

Did you know that idling an engine for 10 seconds uses more gas than shutting off and restarting a car? And car exhaust is dirtier from an idling car than a moving one? Keep the air around our school cleaner by shutting off cars when waiting in the parking lot.

A NOTE FROM THE DIRECTOR

BIG BODY PLAY

(Taken from Child Care Exchange)

Big body play– the sometimes rowdy, always very physical running, rolling, climbing, tagging, jumping, grabbing, and wrestling that most children love and many adults try to shut down-can and should be an integral part of every early childhood setting. There are great benefits from big body play for young children’s physical, emotional, and cognitive development. Children learn how to organize the physical environment, set rules and policies, and supervise the play. They develop increasingly sophisticated communication skills-both verbal and nonverbal-and social skills. It is one of the best ways for children (especially) boys to develop empathy and self-regulation. Creativity and thinking skills are enhanced as children determine and solve problems as the arise in the course of the active play.”

I ENCOURAGE YOU TO LET CHILDREN PLAY! IT IS SO IMPORTANT!
