Let your child know that the staff and I are thinking of them and miss them so much.
As a parent reminded me, this is not easy so do not stress about completing the work. Play is most important for preschoolers and I am sure they are doing plenty of that. If anyone needs help with anything please let me or your teacher know.

    Our Story
    Szetela Early Childhood School is an integrated language based preschool program that services young children with special needs and their typically developing peers. Classrooms are set up as learning centers in which well educated and knowledgeable teachers facilitate learning, communication, and socialization. We use a multi-sensory approach. Children are encouraged to experiment and explore using the provided materials to solve problems, create, and make their own discoveries. This program meets all the Massachusetts Core Curriculum Frameworks for Preschool.
