Dear BFS Families,
In anticipation of the Forums coming in a few weeks, I wanted to highlight the transition into new spaces and offer our perspective about how to successfully approach moving from one space to another. As some of you have already noticed, Kindergarten placements have begun to be announced. We have already had our admissions process.
While I mentioned this at the General Meeting, it bears repeating. Please remember that we do not want to talk about the upcoming transition several months before children move on. In the month of June, teachers include in their classrooms transition activities designed to be an object that honors the growth of each child and the passage from one state to another. We call it Stepping up. These are not comprehensive markers; they are more symbols and a piece of the experience that each child has shared. If a child is moving on within our school, we also visit the spaces they will transition into, exploring the spaces and interacting with our new teachers.
