Last year Josie really wanted to go to preschool like her brother Issac. We knew with him starting all day Kindergarten that Josie would have some adjusting and need some activities of her own so last spring we took advantage of early enrollment at our cooperative preschool and put her in the 3’s class with Teacher Carol. Josie has class two days a week for two hours each day. We spent Wednesdays this summer getting to know our preschool friends & their families. When school started in September, we were ready to go & learn new things with our new friends.
We loved being a part of a co-op preschool last year. So much so that I have chosen to be on the Board of Directors this year. I spend a few hours each week, typing up notices, sending emails and attending meetings. I have decided to use my my time to offer my support to the teachers & program that I believe in.
Josie attend school two mornings a week. On Thursdays I stay & volunteer and on Fridays I get to drop her off.
The first day of class she cried afterwards because it was over.
Every day at preschool they have circle time where they sing and dance, that is by far Josie’s favorite. We sing those songs every day in the car and at home.
Josie also loves the painting easel & daily craft time.
Anything that incorporates glitter or glue & she is IN!
Josie's preschool class takes turns with each child having a special week. That child gets to go first at everything, bring a poster of their self, bring a toy & book for story time each day. Josie got to go first so now her poster is on her bedroom wall.
Josie loves going to preschool everyday. She knows to sign-in & wash her hands before playing. She hugs on her friends & teacher each day. Our hope for her is that she will learn better social skills & get used to taking directions from other adults other than Mom & Dad. She is fitting in great & the year is off to a great start!
