Parent Reminders

Hand Washing

As you all are aware upon arrival we ask that you have your child wash your hands before entering the classroom. Many of you are following this procedure and for that we thank you; however we are finding that parents are leaving their children unattended in the bathroom. We realize it may save some time to drop off their belongings in the classroom while your child is washing their hands but we ask that you please supervise your child while hand washing for safety purposes as well as to ensure proper hand washing. For children that attend West Street, children can wash their hands when they enter the classroom.


Warm and Welcoming

“Bristol Preschool has helped my son so much. They are so warm and welcoming to all families. Thank you for this experience.”

The funds will be utilized to finance the relocation of the program, along with renovations and improvements to 17,000 square feet of space within the former school building and installation of a playground.  Work on the project will reportedly begin this fall.

The children experiment, using programs that help them develop in many exciting ways. Here are some of the things that children learn when they use computers:
