Family Visits

All families accepted through the lottery will be asked to schedule a family visit, which will occur from November through February. We welcome parents and their children to visit Beginnings, learn about our program and see our classrooms in action. The family visit will begin with a private thirty-minute tour of the school with either a Beginnings teacher or a current/alumni parent. You will visit all the classrooms and observe teachers and children engrossed in their morning "activities period" or morning meeting. If the teachers have a free moment they will make every effort to introduce themselves and answer questions.

Following the tour your family will have the opportunity to chat and play with either Jane Racoosin, Director or LeeAnn Valvano, Assistant Director, for about thirty minutes. This is an opportunity for us to get better acquainted and answer any questions you might have. Our hope is that after your family visit you will better understand our values and approach to working with young children.

Beginnings is a member school of ISAAGNY and sends acceptance letters via email on March 1st, 2018 according to their calendar.
