At some point between June and early September, we’ve all sent notes to our new families, possibly met with them as a group, and greeted our preschoolers-to-be. Now we’re ready for (cue drum roll) the first day of school! I always feel a mixture of excitement and trepidation at this point in time. Will I connect easily with this new group of children? Will our room feel welcoming to them? And what about their parents . . . will they be positive and supportive?
