We are sorry for the disruption to family routines and hope you understand that we want to make the best decision based on current information. These are unprecedented times and we thank you for your support and understanding.
We warmly welcome you and your child to Greenbelt Children's Center!
At the Greenbelt Children's Center, we encourage parent
participation. We believe it is important for parents and teachers to
work together, as this benefits the child. We have an open door policy
and parents may visit any time.
You are your child’s first teacher! There are many
ways you can help your child be ready for school. One way is to help your
child with language & literacy. Learning to express needs & wants
by talking, understanding others
through listening and knowing about reading and writing are examples of language & literacy skills.
skills begins at birth.
Here are five important areas: building language skills,
learning about books and print, developing comprehension (understanding),
learning about letters and learning about sounds in words.
When you support your child in these areas, he/she will
be more likely to do well when starting school. Children who easily learn
to read and write have had many experiences with books and language before
school begins. As a parent, you can help build your child’s language
and literacy skills and abilities. We are happy to be your partner in
this and will offer parent learning opportunities so that you will become
more skilled at being your child’s first teacher.
