First Week of School

Happy first week of school!

We are excited to have our new and returning students at the BECC for their first week of classes!  Our students are making smooth transitions to their classrooms...we have had very few tears!  Thank you for helping prepare your child so well for his/her preschool experience.

There were two items we wanted to mention...

The first week back to school is always challenging regarding transportation.  It does take some time to work out the bus routes and make adjustments.  We know there have been some issues with morning pick-up and afternoon drop-off.  We apologize for any problems you may have experienced.  We are in constant contact with the bus company and hope to have any problems resolved by the end of the week.  If you are experiencing any problems, please call us at 781-270-1808.  Thank for your patience with this matter.

Fire lanes need to be clear at all times.  Only buses are allowed to park in front of the building in the fire lanes.  We ask that you do not block them so we can load and unload the buses.  You can park in the fire lane after the front entrance to the preschool.  You can also park across the street after the orange cones.  When parking and walking your child to his/her teacher, we ask that you please have complete control of your child.  Pick up and drop off are busy times, and we want to ensure that all our friends are safe at all times.  We also ask that you avoid parking on the corner by the administration entrance of the building.  It is difficult to see as you come around the corner, and it has the potential to be a dangerous situation.  When parking, the best bet is to park at the bottom of the hill and walk your child/children to their teacher.

Again, we are excited to be working with you and your child.  Please feel free to contact us at 781-270-1808 with any questions or concerns.  We are happy to help.  In the next coming weeks, look more information about our BECC.  Here's to a great year!

Kind Regards,
Deborah Clark

Welcome Back!

Dear BECC Families,

Welcome back!  We are excited to begin the new school year.  The BECC staff has been busy getting ready for the year.

By now you should have received a letter from your child’s classroom teacher.  In that letter you received information about our Open House on Thursday, September 6.  Please make sure that you and your child attend this Open House as this will provide your child the opportunity to become familiar with his/her classroom and what happens at school.  It also helps with first day of school jitters.

The first day of school for the BECC will be Monday, September 10.  On your child’s first day, you will drop your child off outside with their classroom teachers.  There will be tears, and the initial transition into preschool can be a tricky one.  Some children will cry for 2 minutes other children will cry for two weeks. This is harder on you then it is on anyone else.  The preschool teachers are masters at helping children transition.  As soon as the routine becomes familiar and predictable the crying stops and the smiling and learning begins.  A child’s first day of preschool is a big deal.  Because it is such a huge change to their life and schedule it can be very scary for them.  But by following the above tips, you will make your child’s first day of school a smooth and happy transition.

We are here to help you in any way we can.  Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.

See you soon!
The BECC Staff
