Welcome To Salida Early Childhood Center

September 2023

Dear Families,

Welcome back to school!  We are so excited to welcome your family into our classrooms.  Whether you are new to our school, or returning, I hope that you each feel welcomed, supported, and valued as we settle into the routine of a new school year.  Our philosophy is that families are the first and most important teacher in young children’s lives.  We are here to build on what you are already doing and to support your family. 

Over the next several months, our teachers will focus on building strong relationships with your children.  Social and emotional learning is the foundation for all other skill development.  We look forward to sharing more with you as we partner with your family to foster these skills.   

I want to share that our Special Education team is currently a little short staffed.   We have not yet hired another Special Education teacher to replace Jenna’s move into a lead teaching role, and Lisa is on maternity leave with her new baby.  If your child receives Special Education services through our school and you are unsure of who your point of contact is, please connect with your child’s lead teacher.  Also, please know that despite a shortage in staffing, we work every day to ensure that all children have the highest level of care and education.   

I am so excited to get to know your family and your child.  Please reach out if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do to better support your family.  Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year!
