Welcome to all of our OLM families!! This our official first week of school and we are excited for what the new year will bring. Mrs. Donavan and Mrs. Irma are also pleased to introduce some new faces to our Olm Preschool family, Clarissa and Eva, they will be joining our classroom for the new year. Please visit our blog at olmlancers.com and there you will find preschool blogs, again the blog will be our biggest resource on keeping everyone up to date with what is happening in the classroom each week and any important future dates.
For our first week of school, we will be focusing on our classroom rules, our routines and how to use our words. Mrs. Donavan and Mrs. Irma are excited to be using the Second Step early learning program in your child’s classroom to teach important skills.The Second Step program teaches skills in the following four areas:
1. Skills for Learning: Children gain skills to help them be better learners, including how to focus their attention, listen carefully, and ask for help.
2. Empathy: Children learn to identify and understand their own and others feelings. Children also learn how to show care for others.
3. Emotion Management: Children learn how to calm down when they have strong feelings, such as worry or anger.
4. Friendship Skills and Problem Solving: Children learn how to make and keep friends and to solve problems with others in a positive way.
Please remember we are an open door policy for anything you might need, we can't thank you enough for choosing OLM Preschool for your child's first experience in a school setting and we both feel completely blessed to be part of such a big experience.
