• Separation Process •
Dear Riverdale Nursery School and Family Center Families,
It is a pleasure to welcome back returning families and to get to know those new to our School.
As you know, at RNSFC we are thoughtful and intentional about separation. We see separation as a process and view each child and family as unique in this process. We encourage parents to be patient and promise that allowing children to build trust with their teachers will have significant, positive long term results. Let’s work together to form a partnership between your child’s significant adults and his or her education team.
Please take the time to read the following article about separation. Nancy Balaban is on the faculty in the Bank Street Graduate School of Education. She is the author of “Early Goodbyes: Starting School and Early Care-A Guide to the Separation Process.
Again, I welcome you to RNSFC 2015-2016. We are off to an exciting start.
