The School Year Comes To An End…

Dear Parents:

It has been a pleasure to be your children’s teachers and to see these little ones grow and develop and gain confidence in themselves and their abilities.  Thank you for allowing us to experience these precious moments with your children.

One of the stated goals of the Rainbow Factory is to nurture each child’s self-reliance and independence.  Because we care about children’s feelings, the staff avoids long, teary good-byes on our last preschool day.  We know there is a time to let go and to send forth the birds from the nests so they may soar to new heights.  We will send the children forth in happiness so they will not feel tied to preschool and will be able to form new ties with future teachers.  This is as it should be.  We feel privileged to have shared in the growth and development of your child.  For those children returning in the fall, we whisper  “See you in September”.

May your summer be wonderfully fun and relaxing, and may you and your families continue to grow in love together.

Peace,

The Rainbow Factory Staff
