Welcome to Centro Primeros Pasos!
We are excited to welcome you to our PP community! Bienvenidos!
It is time for parents' enrollment "homework" 😁. It may seem like a lot of forms and information needed, but rest assured that we are here to help.
As discussed during the enrollment process, we encourage parents to print out images of our school and simply staple the printouts into a "storybook" to read to your child daily in the week or so before s/he starts school with us. This technique is very effective at facilitating dialogue, surfacing questions, and alleviating general anxiety that your child might have around this important transition. If you click on each photo, you will see a caption with suggested talking point.
Enrollment Documentation - 3 Categories:
Please email all forms once completed to firstname.lastname@example.org (unless otherwise noted.)
