THEME: WELCOME FRIENDS!
Welcome to Perry Park Preschool! We are so excited to be starting school!
You will receive an update every week or two which lists the activities planned for the upcoming week(s). Going forward, the updates will be emailed to each family and can also be found on our website: perryparkpreschool.com.
The first week of school will focus on introducing the children to the rules and routines of the classroom and the playground. The children will be learning new songs to sing for greeting hello, clean-up time and good-bye. (See reverse for the words to the Good Morning Song). They will have the opportunity to explore many interest centers in the classroom including blocks, dramatic play, puzzles, and the science center.
Art exploration will include painting at the easel, using scissors and glue sticks, decorating a place card for snack time and an A is for apple letter activity.

We are looking forward to seeing everyone at the orientation visits on September 9th and 10th.
Orientation will be held in the parking lot near the playground. All attendees are asked to wear a mask. In the event of inclement weather, Orientation will be held in Fellowship Hall. Please follow the signs for the entrance and exit. Each family has been assigned a date/time for their visit.
Please bring with you:
*all of the enrollment forms including a current medical form with up-to-date vaccines listed
*3 4×6 photos of your child,
*the first tuition installment,
*the following art supplies:
scissors, markers, crayons, glue stick, glue bottle and an art smock.
We have acquired clear, plastic shoe boxes that children are welcome to use to hold their art supplies. It is fine to use your own box if you already have one. If not, you are welcome to use one of these.
EEC regulations state that when attending preschool “children are encouraged to wear masks when 6’ of physical distancing cannot be achieved.” Please send your child to school wearing a mask daily and keep 2 replacements masks in their backpacks. We have plenty of disposable masks in the classroom for the children to use if needed. There will be mask breaks during the morning.
Please send an email or call with any questions.
See you then!
