First Day at School: You can help prepare your child for his/her first day at school by engaging in discussion with your child about his/her new classroom, new teacher, new friends, and all of the fun things that your child will do at Lake Hills Montessori. Please arrive between 8:00 am to 8:15 am on the first day. After your child is greeted by the teacher and welcomed into the classroom, please give your child a good-bye kiss and hug, and then depart. It is our experience that children transition easier when the good-bye is kept brief. Although some children will be upset the first time that their parent leaves them at school, they usually settle down shortly after parents leave. Please feel free to call the Director throughout the day to see how your child is doing.
