School Calendar

Holidays and Special Celebrations

Our holidays and special celebrations encourages an enhanced understanding of and respect for different cultures and the beliefs of children, families, staff and community. While the school does not promote specific holidays, we welcome and encourage families to share important traditions with their child’s classroom, keeping in mind the cultural and traditional aspects of the celebration.
Bellow is a list of the special events we celebrate. Exact dates, time and special instructions will be given at least 1 week prior the event .

Parent Orientation

Prior to the start of the school year, an orientation meeting is held for new parents; however all parents are encouraged to attend. The orientation allows families to meet the teachers. The Director also has the opportunity to review the daily routine, school guidelines and answer any questions that parents might have concerning the start of the new school year. Parents also have time to make any needed payments, purchase uniforms, care supplies (i.e. rest-time kit I fitted sheet,pillow and blanket), and drop off some of their child’s needed items. Doing so allows parents to have “free” hands for their children on the first day of school.

Exhibit Night

Occurs in the middle of the new school year before the end of February. The entire Piccoli Bambini staff is introduced as well as the President. General information concerning Piccoli Bambini Preschool and future Parent-Volunteer opportunities for upcoming events are discussed. Parents also have the opportunity to visit their children’s classrooms where the teachers will review their daily routines and yearly goals and objectives. Parents are also invited to events during the school day throughout the year.
