Welcome to Garfield Public Preschool Annex 1



Students at the preschool have been learning about the world around them. It is wonderful to see the growth your children have made these past few months.  Remember that we do go out twice a day and since the weather is warmer, please put sunscreen on your child prior to coming to school.

The classroom teachers will be working with your child in preparing them for their next steps. Please continue to work with your child at home by reading and speaking to them about the world around them. Talk to them about these transitions to better prepare them for the future.

Four-year-old parents we will be provided with a workshop to help you to prepare for the transition from preschool to kindergarten. Please check your monthly calendar and make sure to attend, as this workshop will provide you with pertinent information for the transition of your child from preschool to Kindergarten.

The three-year-old students will also be taking transition trips by visiting the four-year-old classrooms. Students are provided with transitional activities to help promote a positive move.

Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to work and play with your children, it is an honor to be part of your child’s life. Continue to help your child be a lifelong learner by developing their interests and supporting their interests. If you are lucky enough to speak another language, remember to model that language for them to acquire and sustain their first language, as you are always your child’s first teacher.

Make sure to hold your child hand to go into the parking lot as we want to make sure that everyone is always safe. 

               We wish all of you a healthy, happy and safe May!
