This month you will see lots of new faces as old friends return from a summer off and new friends start coming for the very first time. In order to make everyone feel right at home, we will be talking about nursery rhymes and fairy tales that everyone is familiar with. A basic review of skills including numbers, colors, and shapes will ensure that everyone ends up in the correct class. If you are coming for the first time or returning after the summer off remember consistency and routines are the way to make transactions smooth and seamless.
