The First Day of School is an exciting time for children and parents! Read on for more information about what to do and expect on your first day at The Giving Tree!
Before your child begins attending the Giving Tree, we require payment of the Enrollment Fee and one working day for processing. You may bring your child during this period, for a couple of hours to help them get acquainted with the school, the classroom and the teacher.
Children need time to adjust the first few times they experience a new environment separated from their parents. In order to help them feel at ease, we encourage parents to prepare the child at home, and then to develop a parting routine to assist in their child’s transitions. Most children will settle quickly; they are reassured by the teacher and become interested in the toys and other children. The school is happy to assist in developing a transition period procedure at the request of the parents.
Please be sure to speak with our office staff if there are any questions you have regarding the above procedures.
