When They Arrive at the Child’s Room

  • Knock on the door and wait for a teacher to open the door. The door of the room is closed so that noise and people in the hallway do not distract preschoolers from Bible learning.
  • Encourage a child who is walking to walk to the door and into the room. It is easier for your child to separate from you if she is not in your arms.
  • Notify teachers of any changes in your child’s routine. One teacher may take your child while another teacher talks with you and records schedule changes.
  • Follow the security procedures outlined in your church’s preschool policies. You may be required to fill out a sign-in sheet. To ensure that your child is released to an authorized adult, you will be given an ID card, a claim check, or numbered beeper.
  • Interest your child in the teaching item the teacher brings to the door. A teacher may bring a book, a nature item, a picture, or a toy to the door to help ease the transition into the room.
