Welcome to NYA Pre-k! Our preschool program uses the creative curriculum to prepare students for academic learning and to develop the social/emotional skills needed to be successful in life. We have a really awesome team of teachers here at the NYA. My name is Miss Carroll and I feel so lucky to be a part of your child's first school experience.
- Home Visits-
In continuing with our efforts to strengthen the parent-teacher connection in early childhood education, I will be conducting home visits. This means that me (the teacher), and other school professionals such as your child’s case manager or speech therapist will be coming to your home to work with you and your child. We are hoping to share suggestions and support each other in the task of educating your child.
Kids need sleep!
Young children (ages 3-5 ) require 10 to12 hours of sleep every night to restore enough energy to carry out daily activities. The brain will attend to its physical needs first, such as being tired or hungry, before attending to cognitive tasks.
Things to include in bedtime routine for a preschooler:
*Calming down time before bed- playing a quiet game together, reading a story, having a snack or listening to quiet music.
*Let children choose their own pajamas every night.
*Have a few clear bedtime rules & stick to them.
