A Welcome Letter from the Pre-K Director

Dear Pre-K Families,

Welcome to the St. Francis & St. Rose of Lima School Readiness Program. We are excited to be able to work with your child this year.

Our classrooms are mixed age groups of three and four year old children with diverse abilities, backgrounds and cultures. We celebrate the individuality of each child and provide developmentally appropriate activities to promote positive learning experiences for everyone in our program.

Our program is partially subsidized by a school readiness grant from the State of Connecticut Department of Education. Eighty-nine school readiness grant subsidized spaces are available for three and four year old children who reside in New Haven. The fee for this program is based on income and family size and determined by a sliding scale. Discrimination of students and their families applying for admission to our program with respect to race, color, religious creed, national origin, sex, sexual orientation or disability is prohibited.

We believe in supporting and valuing all families. We take very seriously our responsibility to make your child feel safe, comfortable and special. We consider ourselves partners with you in helping your child discover the wonders of learning.

Our door is always open to you. We thank you for the opportunity to work together with you to make our program the best place away from home for your child to learn and grow.

Very truly yours,
Bette Allen,
Director of Pre-Kindergarten
