Nierman Preschool Welcome & Forms
Director's Welcome Letter
Welcome to the Nierman Preschool 2015-16 school year! We are excited about the upcoming year, with new programs for each age level. May it be a year filled with growth, creativity, good health, and friendships for all!
We are making every effort to make the process of submitting preschool forms as easy and efficient as possible. Please review the forms and flyers carefully - there are many opportunities for you and your children, as well as policies with which to become familiar.
New students received a confirmation with forms required by the State of California, as well as additional Nierman Preschool forms. If you have not already done so, please complete these papers immediately and return them to the School Office. For those of you who have not returned the papers or have misplaced the originals, please refer to packet 2 (below), where you can download these forms.
All students should review packet 1 and complete the Student Information Sheet (SIS), as this is our first source for emergency information. Save your form on your computer - any time you have a change, please submit an updated form to the school office. Additionally, the 'Confidential History for New and Returning Students' provides valuable information to teachers.
Packets 3, 4, and 5 have information and forms to sign up for optional food, extended day, and enrichment programs. Packet 6 contains important parent information, including our calendar and special dates.
We welcome any questions and want to help facilitate your return of these forms. If your child has special needs or you would like an opportunity to speak privately with the Director or Teacher, please call me at 858.362.1171 to set up an appointment.
I look forward to greeting you at our Registration Day on Tuesday, July 7th, when we will be open from 8:30 am – 5:30 pm to collect all your completed paperwork. Should you be unable to attend, please contact the school office to make a special appointment.
Looking forward to a wonderful year,
Alma Hadash Geiger, Director, Early Childhood Education
