Parent and Child Orientation

The admissions process at Holy Martyrs ARS Pilavjian Preschool is designed to help interested families explore the School’s unique philosophy and program. Together, we can decide if the School is a good fit for your child and your family.

Parent and Child Orientations

The School provides four formal orientations on the Program’s mission and philosophy.

  • Informative, personal tours of the school are scheduled by appointment during the program year.
  • During registration, parents are given detailed information regarding school operations.
  • A welcoming letter including orientation date, class location preschool necessities and the name of the child’s teacher is mailed to families prior to the new program year.
  • A formal parent orientation is scheduled before the first day of school. At this meeting, parents are given detailed information regarding the School’s policies, classroom curriculum and schedule, and they meet their child’s teacher in the classroom.

In addition to the above four formal orientations, parents are welcomed to arrange visits to their child in the School.It is our mission to keep parents informed of the School’s ongoing programs. On a daily basis, parents will receive notes regarding their children located in parent mailboxes.
