From the Director:
We strongly feel that children need to play when they are young. They learn so much through play to increase their development, but most importantly they learn social interactions with others.
When the child is behind, excelling, or different from the other children I discuss it with the parents we come up with a plan and work on it in both home and school envirnment.
Here at Skip to My Lou's Family Preschool we are a happy, family environment where your children will enjoy learning many things from daily routines, individual exploration and focused learning activities. We strongly feel that children need to play when they are young. They learn so much through play to increase their development, most importantly they learn social interactions with others. It's our desire to provide for your family the care and education you're looking for.

Open communication is the key to a happy, long lasting relationship between a teacher and her preschool families.
Some of the ways I communicate with my clients:
Parent-teacher conference every 6 months
Newsletter once a month
Flyers on activites in our community
Daily verbal report on child's day
We handle separation anxiety several ways:
*Let the child know that the parent will be back and that the parent is thinking about the child.
*Have the parent bring a photo album of special people in the childs life
*Stay close to the child until he/she starts to feel comfortable
*redirect their attention
