Welcome Back to School 2018-1019
Dear Barnard Families:
We are excited to welcome back our returning students and extend a heartfelt welcome to our new students for the 2018-2019 school year!
We look forward to continuing our vision - teaching the whole child and create a passion for lifelong learning for every student in our Barnard community. Our teachers and staff will continue participating in professional development to ensure we are engaging our students in learning activities that are being taught using research based curriculum and best practices.
Your children will have the opportunity to learn and grow together as a community, and individually as a result of a wide variety of teaching and learning modalities that meet both the academic and social/emotional needs of children. Barnard Early Childhood Center’s teachers and staff take pride in our abilities to understand the development of children in their most formative years of brain development. We believe in the practice of ALL means ALL as it pertains to every child’s potential and ability to learn, and interact with all of our students in various activities including,but not limited to, Amy’s Greenhouse. We are fortunate to have such a wonderful space for children to learn through hands on experiences.
In addition, we are committed to keeping lines of communication open for all parents/guardians. You are always welcome to email your child’s teachers, and meet with them personally through parent teacher conferences to discuss your child’s progress and needs. Establishing a positive home-school connection is a primary goal for us as we recognize and value this connection and its direct correlation to academic achievement. We are also available to answer questions via email and to meet whenever the need arises.
At Barnard, your children will have fun learning and playing together, and growing in every area of child development. Cheers to another great school year! To the newest members of our community, welcome to a very special place to be with people who cherish each opportunity to help children achieve their potential as well as respect and embrace our cultural diversity.
