Message from the Director

Welcome back to a year that promises to be full of fun, friendship, growth and learning! We are excited to begin our year with new adventures.
 
I am the director of our Early Childhood program at the Varnett Public School and I am looking forward to serving our Varnett community.
 
The Varnett Public School is an amazing place to work, learn and grow.  Our incredibly dedicated staff works hard to provide a high-quality program that is rooted in rigorous standards based on curriculum and enriched with fine arts.  Our goal is to ensure academic and personal success for each student.  Together, we encourage each child to aspire to his or her highest potential in a safe and engaging environment.  We strive to provide opportunities so that our students may face and triumph over the challenges of the 21st century.
 

As “newcomers” to our Early Childhood classrooms, you undoubtedly have questions as to how your child’s class operates.  I would like to take this opportunity to explain some aspects of our program. Kindergarten has joined the pre-kindergarten campus and we are excited. 

We are extremely proud of our Early Childhood program. As we eagerly accommodate this specific age group of students of four- and five-year-olds who are enrolled in our pre-kindergarten and kindergarten classes, it is imperative that we do not misconstrue our program with requirements of various “daycare” facilities. In order for our students to participate in this program, it is imperative that students and parents adhere to all state mandates, school policies and procedures (attendance, tardiness, homework, assignments, uniform requirements, discipline school disruptions, safety, etc.).  Ensuring the success of each child is a collaborative effort on behalf of the parent and the entire school community.

Thank you, parents

Each room offers a range of activities that include learning through play, song, dance, art and technology.  Each room has some duplication of the most popular materials and equipment but also some things that are unique to that room.

At the beginning of the school year, our main goals are to:

  1. Establish a sense of security in the children through the setting of routines.
  2. Foster an easy separation from parent(s).
  3. Encourage the adjustment to new classmates and teachers.

Each year is somewhat different, depending on the needs of the children and their personalities, the dynamics of each class, the special events throughout the year and even the weather!

Our playground gives us added flexibility, allowing classes to overlap outdoor time. The teachers may capitalize on good weather days by choosing to do outside learning or an art project outdoors, by having a snack and story time outdoors or both.

The Varnett Public School would not be the school it is without the dedication of the parents and community. We value each and every parent and look forward to working with you.

We embark on a new school year with joy and enthusiasm, and we thank each of you for your support of our program.  If you have any questions or concerns that have not been addressed here, please feel free to contact the Early Childhood campus.

Sincerely,

Cheyne Brown

Early Childhood Director
