Transition to a New Group

The children are grouped by age and development. Vacancies often occur over the summer,
as our oldest children leave the Center to go to kindergarten. Additionally, as vacancies occur
throughout the school year, children may move up to the next group. Your child’s Lead
Teacher will consult with you about such a move. If there is agreement on the move, your child
will begin visiting his/her new class, increasing the length of the visit each day. This gives your
child the opportunity to get acquainted with his/her new teachers and “classmates”. When your
child moves into his/her new class, your child’s name will be included on the new group’s signin sheet, s/he will have a cubby and you will have a new mailbox.
