The first days in ECE: Schedules and what to bring

Preschool and junior kindergarten 

We recommend, if at all possible, a gradual transition into full-time classes by attending partial days (mornings) the first week of school. Communicate with your child’s teacher to develop a transition plan that will best meet the needs of your child and family. 

The first days of Early Childhood

In my days as a summer camp director, a dear friend used to say, “Opening day of camp is like Christmas and the kids are the presents.” This truly captures my feelings about the first day of school. I am excited to welcome you to a new year in CFIS’s Early Childhood Division, also known as ECE. Whether this is your first experience with us or you are an “old hand” at CFIS, I am happy to have your family as part of our school community. For our youngest students, the start of a new school year is an adventure full of hope and excitement.

Elementary Division renovations

Part of the upper south wing of the Elementary Division has undergone renovations this summer. Two large classrooms were transformed into three adjustable classrooms, allowing for a more flexible learning environment. Sliding panels between the classrooms can be opened, providing opportunities for collaboration, mentoring and movement. New flexible, easily movable furniture will allow the learning environment to be transformed within minutes.

Staying connected

Please note the following events for Grades 1 to 6:

Grade 1 to 6 Information evenings: 

You are invited to attend our parent information sessions to meet our teachers and familiarize yourself with details pertaining to your child’s coming year. If you have more than one child in these grades, do not feel obliged to attend each event, yet you are welcome to should you wish. If you need to attend more than one classroom presentation in one evening, let your teachers know so you can leave presentations early to meet all of the teachers.
