Preschool & Pre-K Rooms Welcome Letter

Welcome to Wildkitten Den Preschool and Pre-K classrooms! We look forward to getting to know you and your family. It is our goal to prepare your child to enter kindergarten and be successful! In the preschool and pre-k classrooms we follow the Arizona Early Learning Standards and use Beyond Textbooks to guide our curriculum. Portfolios documenting student progress are updated weekly with work samples, photos, and artwork. These portfolios will follow your child through their time here at the Wildkitten Den. When they move on from our care, we will send the portfolio home with you. Our lesson plans are posted weekly and copies can be made for you upon request. Also, weekly newsletters will be sent home with information about the upcoming week, special events, and other necessary information. We will meet together twice a year for a parent/teacher conference to discuss goals and any questions that you may have about the classroom and your child. We are always available to meet at any other time upon request.

We only have a few requests as far as dress code expectations. Please remember in warmer months that a long lasting sunscreen needs to be applied at home. Closed toe shoes, like tennis shoes, are highly recommended. No flip flops or open toe sandals are allowed. There are a lot of little feet running around, bikes being ridden and toes get hurt easily. If dresses are worn, please make sure that shorts are worn underneath.

Every child will have an assigned cubby, so please check regularly for papers and treasured art work that needs to go home. We understand that accidents happen, so a change of clothes is necessary. For children that are three years old, there is a required quiet or nap time. So if your child wants it, a small blanket from home may be brought. Naps are not necessary in the Pre-K room as we are preparing your child for full day Kindergarten. Although, if a nap is needed….they are welcome to nap with the younger class.

We are big on communication, so please feel free to ask or bring any concerns, questions, or compliments that you may have. We are here in partnership with you to help your child be successful.

Thank you for choosing Wildkitten Den for your child’s preschool experience! We will do our best to meet your expectations.
