General Information

You will receive a newsletter at the first of each month. The newsletter is to inform you of current events in the school, the unit of study each month, in-class birthdays, holidays, and other important information.

In addition to the monthly newsletter, there will be a Parent’s Information Board in the classroom. It is very important to us that we keep our parents well-informed. The board will post special events, volunteer needs, a snack schedule, or in-class parties, preschool news, a copy of the newsletter and much more. Please be sure to check the Parents Board daily for updated news. Parents are encouraged to visit the school at any time. At Lakeview Maria Montessori Preschool, we have an “open door” policy and parents may visit the school whenever they wish.

We will have three “room moms”. These moms will be responsible for helping to organize any in-class parties or events. If you would like to help out in this way, please see Miss Rachel. We feel that it is important for the parents to be able to be involved and excited about their child’s preschool. Parents with special skills or talents are welcome to share them with the children. Be sure to discuss this with Miss Rachel in advance, so she can work you into the classroom schedule.

For most young children that have not had a lot of experience away from home, school adjustment takes some time. Children need a chance to adjust to the new environment. They have new people to meet and new routines to learn. During their initial transition into our program, we’d like to suggest to you to refrain from visiting the school to see your child. Sometimes a quick visit, while reassuring to the parent, is upsetting to the child. They don’t understand the reason for a quick visit. When you drop your child off in the morning, a quick “good-bye” is usually best. As your child becomes more comfortable with the school and is easily adjusting from home to school, we will then encourage your visits. Remember, you are always welcome to call the school to ask about your child.
