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
