• A Welcome Letter from Our Preschool Supervisor

    Welcome to the Mad River Early Childhood Center. I am so excited that you are considering our preschool as the place for your child to grow and learn! Our program offers a wide variety of academic experiences and works to instill a love of education into the hearts of our young students.

    Each year, our preschool students enter school with a diverse range of experiences eagerly ready to absorb everything preschool has to offer. You may be surprised at what an intensive learning program preschool has become. Our goal is for every student to reach his or her developmental educational potential by building a strong academic foundation. A student’s academic success is based on developmental readiness, a nurturing environment, and parental involvement.

    We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:

    •  Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience
    •  Is read to daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills
    •  Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life
    • Knows that you expect him/her to succeed in school

    For children entering preschool in Mad River, the year will be an exciting action-packed year, which begins to open the world of reading and learning about the world around us. The children will learn reading concepts, to problem-solve, as well as investigate the world of science, technology, engineering, math and history. If you are uncertain of your child’s readiness, our staff will be happy to share expectations and answer any questions regarding your child’s readiness in reading, mathematics, science and technology, health and physical education, and the arts. We believe that teachers and parents should work together to provide challenging and engaging learning experiences. This partnership will build children's confidence and encourage them to continue to see learning as both enjoyable, useful and provide a strong foundation for their future intellectual, physical and social development.

    Our wonderful staff and I feel privileged to be a part of this school family. I encourage you to call, e-mail or stop by the preschool office to set up a tour of our classrooms if you are interested in learning more about us. You are also welcome to call and ask any questions you may have. We offer a variety of preschool schedules to meet the needs of our families.

    Sincerely,

    Pam Roberts
