ith the start of the new school year
less than a week away, many schools
in the district are planning open
house-type activities to welcome students and
their parents back to school. The annual dis-
trict open house is scheduled for Thursday,
September 1, from 1:30 to 3 p.m. While no for-
mal activities are planned at some schools, the
open house will allow students and families to
become acquainted with the layout of the
school building and the location of individual
classrooms.
Other schools have more extensive activi-
ties planned prior to the start of school, and
also during the first few weeks of the year.
DANE BARSE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
Dane Barse is participating in the district
open house tomorrow from 1:30 to 3 p.m.
Sylvia Morano, the school’s new principal, said
all families are encouraged to come out to
meet the staff and tour the building. The staff
at Dane Barse is excited to begin the 2011-2012
school year by working with the parents to
provide the best education possible to our stu-
dents,” said Morano. For further information,
call the school at 794-6940.

Preschool students who will be attending
Dallago Early Childhood Center and Max
Leuchter Preschool Center are invited, with
their families, to the annual back-to-school
night on September 1 from 6 to 8 p.m., said

Committee Is Looking Forward
The Mayor’s Blue Ribbon Committee
would like to offer some information which
we believe will address some questions
concerning Vineland’s 150th Birthday cele-
bration. This committee of local citizen
volunteers represents all segments of the
city—police, firefighters, teachers, local
business leaders, church leaders, city work-
ers, and lovers of Vineland’s history! Each
and every Blue Ribbon meeting has wel-
comed and appreciated various guest par-
ticipants who have had the opportunity to
make some important suggestions concern-
ing everything from the commemorative
book to the selection and choices of cake.
Considering the time constraints of a hard-
working Vineland citizenry, the meeting
participation has been outstanding and
appreciated by not only the committee, but
also by the Mayor and the Vineland citi-
zens who have enjoyed the activities so far.
Let’s address a few concerns. Our local
papers have done an outstanding job of fea-
turing many photos of the carnival, parade,
and the fireworks display to cap off the
days of the Birthday celebration. From
August 4 to 7, the campus of Vineland High
School was the site of the Birthday
Celebration events. The Carnival, spon-
sored by the North Vineland Fire Co. #3,
had rides, food, and many of the novelties
that you would find at most of our Jersey
boardwalks. Especially on Sunday, the big
day, the many carnival visitors were varied,
relaxed, enthusiastic, and especially prone
to want to reminisce, talk about early
Vineland, and growing up in Vineland.
Workers in the tents commented on the
many out-of-towners or former
Vinelanders who came back for the cele-
bration. The many enthusiastic compli-
ments were contagious and made for a
truly fun day, even while working!
The choice of the parade route was in
question. The concerns have been under-
standably received. As this celebration (and
all events) were financed by donations, the
cost of parading down Landis Avenue was
entirely too prohibitive to consider when
observing all of the legal issues concerning
police, security, fire, street closings, over-
time for city workers, cleanup, and more.
Therefore, the number one issue was finan-
cial. As far as loss of business, the stores are
closed on Sunday, allowing even those busi-
nesses to participate in the Carnival venue
events. The committee felt that the campus
parade route would easily enable everyone
at the carnival to be close to everything
without having to travel across town, park,
then return for the fireworks since there
were many children as well as adults
marching in the parade who were partici-
pating on stage before or after the parade.
The benefit and comfort of having the
route begin and conclude at the same place
kept the participants from walking another
mile back to its start especially considering
the intense heat that day. Very importantly,
the access for the handicapped was easily
configured for one of the campus parking
lots and senior citizen CAT transportation
was arranged to coincide with the events.
We received many appreciative responses.
The police reported that it was the first
time there were no traffic jams or parking
issues. Even though most committee mem-
bers would agree that Landis Avenue
would be the ideal parade route, we had to
consider both financial and logistical con-
siderations for those wanting to enjoy and
participate in all the events. The results
greatly exceeded our expectations.
Finally, there is the Commemorative
Book. For those who remember Vineland’s
1961 Centennial Book with its red, white,
and blue cover, the Blue Ribbon Committee
will be offering a sesquicentennial version
as soon as it’s completed. There have been
ad solicitations and publishing deadlines
that have been extended, but we are confi-
dent that the final product will be worth the
wait. This book, as is the 1961 book, will
become more than just a means of adver-
tisement for those who have contributed—it
will become an artifact of Vineland’s history
just as the 1961 book has become. We will
keep the public informed as to its upcoming
distribution—and distribute for free!
Please check the City of Vineland web-
site, the local newspapers, and Channel 9
TV postings for upcoming events each
month. There are many souvenirs for sale
at City Hall’s ground floor that can be pur-
chased at City Hall’s License & Inspections
office on the 3rd floor. Also, there are two
new publications on Vineland by both The
Friends of Historic Vineland and The
Vineland Historical and Antiquarian
Society that can be purchased by contact-
ing these groups.
The 150th Birthday Celebration has been
entirely sponsored by local businesses,
groups, and individuals who have generous-
ly and selflessly given of their money and
time, to make this a memorable event for all
of Vineland. Let’s honor the past, embrace
the future, and keep looking forward!
—The Mayor’s Blue Ribbon Committee
Honor Our Athletes
I have recognized the two professional
baseball players Mike Trout and Darren
Ford who live in Millville and Vineland.
Both are the “cream of the crop.” We will
be hearing more from them in the future.
Cumberland County has many excellent
athletes. I recommend that a roombe set
aside at the county offices. In this room, we
could list all the great athletes fromthe past
and present that came fromour county.
We should be proud of the athletes. This
would be an excellent public relations tool
for visitors to see.
Other areas in Philadelphia and New
York, etc. have raved about their athletes.
They will be shocked to see how many
great athletes our county has produced.
—Stephen I. Plevins, Vineland {

Hands Up For Charity
"Hands Up - The Pose" was a
social experiment started by Vineland
resident Jessica Hawk-Ippolito in the
beginning of July. The original goal
was to get people across the United
States and around the world to take a
picture of themselves in the "hands
up" pose, shown in the picture of
Jessica and her brother Brian Hawk
at Universal Studios (right). Within
seven weeks, the Facebook page ded-
icated to the experiment had pictures
from 45 states, multiple countries in
Europe, six of the seven continents,
and Broadway/morning show celebri-
ties. To see all of the pictures sub-
mitted, search "Hands Up - The Pose"
on Facebook.
This September, Hawk-Ippolito is
taking the experiment to the next
level by adding a "Hands Up Charity
Challenge" to help raise funds for
local and national charitable organi-
zations. If you would like more infor-
mation about how you or your busi-
ness can get involved go to
www.handsupthepose.com and click
"Charity Challenge" for the details.

Aviation Model-Building
Classes Begin September 10th
There is still time to register your child
in the aviation modeling classes that begin
on Saturday, September 10, 2011, at
Millville Airport.
The classes are sponsored by the
Millville Army Air Field Museum and take
place in the Wyble Library Building next to
the Museum on Saturday mornings from 9
a.m. to 1 p.m. The cost of the 12-week pro-
gram is $125. There are still several open-
ings available. Parents may sign their chil-
dren up by call the Museum at (856) 327-
2347.
Students ages ten years and up learn the
basic concepts of flight by building balsa
gliders, then a rubberband model series,
and, in the final stage, building and flying
engine-powered models. At completion of
the course, each student learns how to fly
control-line models, also called “U-control
models.”
The program was developed and is
taught by Howard Bueschel, long-time
aerospace educator for the State of New
Jersey as well as for Mercer County
College and Edison State College in
Trenton, NJ. He is assisted by Roy Wilson
of Mays Landing, who also has extensive
aeronautical experience and brings a
wealth of information about airplane mod-
eling. Edward Carlaw completes a trio of
instructors for this comprehensive course.
Last year’s students show off their models
at the end of the 12-week session.

Departments create calming measures and
enforcement plans that will promote safety
and ultimately physical activity within the
target area. Vineland will begin to cover
these goals by holding these “closed-
streets” events and continue the use of the
closed streets for children and families to
play without the worries of traffic.
For the first street closure social service
providers and other community organiza-
tions planned to be on hand to conduct free
screenings and distribute materials related
to health and wellness for the participants.
This event is held rain or shine. Rain
location is inside Gloria Sabater
Elementary School (use Almond Street
entrance).
USDA Funding for Buena Vista
Township Fire District
U.S. Representative Frank A. LoBiondo
(NJ-02) has announced a $403,000 federal
low-interest loan from the U.S. Department
of Agriculture (USDA)’s Rural
Development office to assist Buena Vista
Township Fire District No. 2 in completing
the building of its new four-bay fire station.
“Day in and day out our first responders
place themselves in harm’s way. In order to
successfully do their jobs, our local fire and
emergency response companies need to
have critical readiness equipment and facil-
ities. This USDA Rural Development loan
will be very beneficial to the Buena Vista
Township Fire District No. 2 to ensure they
can respond to emergency calls throughout
the community,” said LoBiondo, a member
of the Congressional Fire Caucus.
The new fire station will house two
ambulance bays, training facility and a stor-
age area. USDA awarded the low-interest
loan at a rate of four and a quarter (4.25)
percent for 30 years.
Cumberland County State 4-H
Public Presentations Day
Results
This summer the New Jersey 4-H Youth
Development Program hosted the 2011
State 4-H Public Presentations Day on the
Douglass Campus of Rutgers University in
New Brunswick. Over 150 4-H members
from 18 counties participated, giving oral
presentations on a variety of subject areas.
To qualify, each participant must be a 4-H
member enrolled in 8th-13th grade and
have received an excellent rating on their
presentation at the county level.
The event provides an opportunity for
4-H members to compete with their public
presentations on the state level with 4-H
members from around New Jersey. The
presentations were judged by teams of 4-H
volunteers, staff, alumni and educators, as
audience members watched. Each partici-
pant received an excellent, very good or
good ribbon and the top presentation in
each room received an Outstanding Room
Award.
The following members from

The Salem County Health Care
Facilities Emergency Preparedness
Committee, comprising the seven long
term care facilities, the two hospitals (the
Memorial Hospital of Salem County and
Elmer Hospital), the federally qualified
health center (Southern Jersey Family
Medical Center), the County and munici-
pal Offices of Emergency Management,
plus the Salem County Health
Department and the New Jersey
Department of Health and Senior
Services, was the venue for this and other
agreements. The Committee has been
meeting monthly for over a year and has
been working together on many projects.
Every facility has met with the County
Office of Emergency Management to
review and improve their emergency pre-
paredness plan. They all helped to craft
this agreement among others.
Additionally, in June, all seven facilities
participated in an exercise held at the
Salem County Department of Emergency
Services in Woodstown where they had
the chance to talk about how they would
respond to a series of both individual and
group emergencies. The Committee con-
tinues to meet monthly to work on new
challenges to help continue leading the
way in the State. I

Long Term Care Facilities Sign
Historic Agreement To Assist
In Emergencies
Salem County is leading the way in the
State to protect some of its most vulnerable
citizens. Through the Salem County Office
of Emergency Management, all seven Long
Term Care Facilities in the County signed a
historic agreement to assist one another
during emergencies.
The seven facilities, Carneys Point
Rehabilitation and Nursing Center in
Carneys Point, Eagleview Health and
Rehabilitation in Pittsgrove, Friends Village
in Woodstown, Golden Rehabilitation and
Nursing Center in Mannington, Mater Dei
Nursing Home in Newfield, Merion
Gardens Assisted Living in Carneys Point,
and Southgate Health Care Center in
Carneys Point, with leadership and assis-
tance from the Salem County Office of
Emergency Management and the New
Jersey Department of Health and Senior
Services have signed the first Agreement in
New Jersey involving every long term care
facility in the county. That agreement will
enable the residents from one facility to be
sent to any other facility in Salem County if
an emergency arises.
“Salem County is leading the way and
setting the standard for the State in taking
care of our elderly and disabled popula-
tion” said Freeholder Director Lee Ware.
Previously, each long term care facility had
agreements with other facilities on a one to
one basis. “These residents of long term
care facilities need special care and this
countywide agreement helps to make sure
they’ll stay cared for,” stated Ware.
Jeff Pompper, the Salem County
Emergency Management Coordinator and
Executive Director of the Salem County
Department of Emergency Services said,
“Salem County has had several facilities
that have experienced emergencies over
the past three years. An agreement like this
will make life easier for everybody by
allowing everybody to share the load when
people are in peril. Several other Counties
have said they’re interested in getting
agreements with Salem County in the
future to make sure that everybody’s help-
ing one another because emergencies aren’t
scheduled and can happen to anyone any-
time.”
“It is crucial that long term care facili-
ties work together to prepare for any health
emergency that would interrupt operations
at one or more facilities,” said DHSS
Assistant Commissioner Christopher Rinn.
“This agreement ensures that residents of
Salem County’s seven long term facilities
will have a safe and effective relocation in

rom time to time, I like to use this
column to spotlight some of our
downtown businesses so you get a
sense of the wide array of choices
you have when you make downtown
Vineland your destination for shopping.
With my column last week about our
upcoming Wedding Weekend, it is a good
segue into flowers—and Landis Avenue has
some fine florists that can fill your needs.
Finer Flowers & Gifts, located at 645 E.
Landis Avenue, has been a fixture down-
town for 22 years. At that time, Al and Vida
Nassiri opened a small flower shop at the
site of the former Morvay’s Market. Vida
had experience in flower arranging and
home decorating. With her husband help-
ing her in the store, they gradually enlarged
the business over the next five years to its
present size. Their daughter, Maryam
Karvar, eventually came to help them, after
owning Blossoms at Lincoln and Dante
avenues for several years.
Today, Finer Flowers &Gifts carries flo-
ral arrangements for all occasions, especial-
ly weddings, funerals, and Sweet 15 and 16
celebrations. “We are a one-stop shop for all
wedding accessories,” Karvar says. In addi-
tion to flowers, wedding accessories such as
arches and chuppahs are also available for
rent. Also popular are balloon bouquets, as
well as fruit and gourmet baskets for holidays.
They also carry a wide variety of gifts
and celebration accessories. “The gifts
started with some stands and planters my
father put out on display,” Karvar says.
“That started a demand for other things
and the selection grew from there.”
As you pass by the store you can see
the merchandise being showcased in their
outdoor display—a holdover from the days
of Morvay’s Market.
A couple blocks to the east is
Neighborhood Florist, at 801 E. Landis
Avenue, which opened in October of last
year by Esther Hernandez and her daugh-
ter Esther Guadalupe. Before that, Esther
Hernandez had studied flower design, did
work at home, and worked with other
flower shops before she and her daughter
operated Neighborhood Florist in
Newfield for five years.
They are also a full-service flower shop
with delivery service, and feature fresh and
artificial flower arrangements, plants, and
fruit baskets with flowers, as well as gift
items and accessories.
“Weddings are a specialty of ours,” says
Hernandez. “We work closely with our
downtown bridal and formal shops and, for
the bride, we carry homemade headpieces
and other items.”
Both businesses pride themselves on the
quality personal service not necessarily
available in the big-box stores carrying
bouquets. “As a family business, we work
with everybody’s budget. With the econo-
my and everything else affecting people,
you have to work with people,” Karvar said.
“We take pride in personal service and
putting our experience to work to give you
exactly what you want,” Hernandez said.
A more recent addition downtown is
Triple Oaks Nursery and Florist, located in
Landis MarketPlace, 631 E. Landis Ave.
Though new in Vineland, the business is
familiar to many for their Franklinville
location, under the longtime ownership of
the Kiefer family. Lorraine Kiefer and her
son Joe run the business here
At the Landis MarketPlace store, they
sell freshly cut flowers, as well as house
plants, and culinary herbs. They also plan
to hold classes in natural gardening and
floral arrangements.
For flowers, as with so many other
items, make downtown Vineland your des-
tination the next time you go shopping.
***
There’ll be plenty of great eatin’ in store
at the fifth annual BBQ ‘n Chili Cook-Off,
sponsored by Susquehanna Bank and sup-
ported by Comcast, to take place on
Saturday, September 24 (rain date:
September 25) from 4 to 9 p.m., on the 600
block of Landis Avenue. Vendors will vie
for prizes for the best BBQ and chili—all
this and our annual Homemade Wine
Competition, live music, and lots more! I

Vineland’s New Teachers Prepped for Year Ahead
Ninety-seven newteachers and mid-year hires completed three days of ori-
entation recently at the Vineland Board of Education Administration building on
Plum Street. The annual program continued the district's process of preparing
for the first day of classes on September 6.
The first-day session opened August 22 with words of encouragement from
Dr. Maryann Banks, Superintendent of Schools, following an introduction by Dr.
Dina Elliott, Assistant Superintendent for Administration.
Dr. Banks said she looked forward to informal visits to the classrooms of the
new teachers and those new to the district. She also repeated a quote she said
was appropriate for their careers in education.
"Ideal teachers are those who use themselves as bridges over which they
invite their students to cross, then having facilitated their crossing, joyfully col-
lapse, encouraging them to create bridges of their own," she said.
During the program, the new teachers reported to their respective schools for
site-based orientation with the principal and staff. Subjects covered were:
Preparing for the Opening of School, Review of School Policies and Procedures,
Review of Professional Responsibilities, and Acquire Textbooks and Materials.
Staff also received K-12 Training from Steve Dantinne and they had time with the
Content Supervisors by Content Areas. All preschool teachers met with the prin-
cipal and supervisor at the Dallago Preschool Center.
Dr. Banks speaks to the new teachers during the August 22 opening session.

or Tony Romero and Jerry Powell,
owners of Budget Mufflers and Car
Care, it’s all about customer service
and satisfaction. The two lifetime car
lovers first met while they were both work-
ing at Midas. After about 10 years on the job
answering to superiors and doing things
Midas’ way, the two came up with the idea to
go into business for themselves, thinking
they could improve on some of the deficien-
cies they saw going on at Midas. Thus, they
opened Budget in 1995.
When the shop opened, the two newbusi-
ness owners made a pact with each other that
ensuring customer satisfaction was of the
utmost importance if they wanted the busi-
ness to stand out and be a long-termventure.
“The customer always comes first,” said
Romero during a recent interview. “We know
the customers’ needs—they need their vehicle,
they don’t want to tie it up for two or three
days. And we strive to accommodate that.”
Aside fromgetting car repairs done in a
timely fashion, perhaps the most important
aspect of Budget’s customer satisfaction strat-
egy is in their pricing. It is Budget’s policy,
when looking for parts, to call around to at
least three suppliers, getting multiple quotes,
and always selecting the best parts for the
best value. A combination of quality and
affordability is of a paramount concern when
an employee at Budget does the part pricing.
“We buy in quantity, and we shop around
for the customer’s best price,” said Romero.
“Every day when a car comes in, and we
need a part, one of us calls around to at least
three shops, if not more, in order to keep the
price down. It is our policy that we consult
this many people to make sure the customer
gets the best price in the area. We willingly
do this.”
For patrons looking to get work done on
their car, price gauging is always a concern.
Budget recognizes this fact, and, because of
it, they have established another policy that
guarantees the customer is paying list price
for their parts.
“We guarantee that every time we put a
part in your car, that it is list price and will
not be bumped up,” Romero said.
With policies focused so much on cus-
tomer satisfaction, it’d be easy for an individ-
ual to be suspicious, and believe that there
must be a catch somewhere. However,
Romero is vehement in stating that this is not
the case, and he has good reason. All of
Budget’s customer-driven policies not only
benefit the customer, but also the business.
“You don’t want to end up doing the work
two or three times,” he said. “You want to
satisfy the customer with a first time repair.
If we sell a part that isn’t quality, the cus-
tomer is going to be disgusted, and won’t
come here anymore. We’d rather go with a
quality part and have the customer happy.
That’s a big advantage.”
Right now, Budget is running specials on
oil changes, AC charge or radiator coolant
services, work on brakes, and engine tune-
ups. I
Budget Mufflers and Car Care is open from
8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and
8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays. After-hours
drop offs are available.

Vintage Vineland { BY VINCE FARINACCIO }
U.S. Highway 40
Budget Car Care
In 1961, the Gray family got its kicks travelling
cross-country on Route 40.
A lifetime love of cars shows in the work done and
customer satisfaction. { TEXT AND PHOTO BY RYAN DINGER }
T
he popularity of National
Geographic magazine has guar-
anteed a longevity that currently
boasts a 123-year existence. The
publication, a distinctively designed and
globally aware monthly known for its pho-
tographic content as well as its articles,
has survived many of its contemporaries
and has even launched a web incarnation.
Long ago, an article or mention in its
pages was newsworthy, and among the
countless issues it has printed, Vineland
and this area of southern New Jersey
earned a small place of recognition at a
celebratory moment in the town’s history.
During what appears to be the summer
of 1960, Ralph Gray packed up his family
for an Atlantic City vacation that would
act as a prelude to a 3,000-mile cross-
country drive to the West Coast. Gray
writes that his urge to explore was spon-
taneous, but his decision to discover
America firsthand could easily have been
fueled by the recently published exploits
of a New York-based writer who revived
the romantic notion of the open road.
Jack Kerouac, author and reluctant
leader of the Beat movement, achieved
fame with the release of his novel On the
Road, a fictionalized account of his cross-
county adventures in the late 1940s. The
book was published by Viking Press in
September 1957, and what ensued was a
population’s renewed interest in traveling
through small-town America to witness the
landscapes, cultures and customs residing
there. Four decades after the death of its
author, the book maintains the same allure
for some of today’s readers in spite of or,
maybe more accurately, as a reaction
against the country’s metamorphosis into a
corporate climate of social networking.
Kerouac’s trajectory across America
and back was as varied as his methods of
transportation. Hitchhiking and hopping
freights, he was a passenger of buses, cars,
trucks and trains, traveling alone or with
companions from New York to the Pacific
Coast or to the southern realms of
Louisiana, Colorado and even into Mexico.
In 1960, Nobel Prize-winning author
John Steinbeck undertook his own jour-
ney through America with his canine
companion Charley, confining his travels
to much of the perimeters of the United
States. His account of the trip, which
recent studies have deemed partially fic-
tionalized, would appear in 1962 as
Travels with Charley in Search of America.
Gray’s is a more refined itinerary.
While attending an education convention
in Atlantic City, he read that the resort
marked the start of U.S. Highway 40. He
decided to undertake, along with his wife
and four children, a journey along Route
40 from Atlantic City to San Francisco,
California. The vehicle of choice was the
family station wagon by which they
explored the history of various towns that
bordered or were situated within reach of
the U.S. highway they traversed. Including
side trips, the Gray clan logged 17,000
miles on their summer journey.
In the July 1961 issue of National
Geographic, Gray’s article was published as
“From Sea to Shining Sea,” and coincided
with Vineland’s summer centennial cele-
bration. It contained a brief mention of
the town as well as some images of south-
ern Jersey and hinted that the family did
not always confine themselves strictly to
Route 40.
“As we put Atlantic City behind us…we
rolled through the piny [sic] flats and
truck farms of southern New Jersey,”
Gray writes of the early portion of the
trip. “West of fast-growing Vineland we
came to Seabrook Farms, one of the
world’s largest agricultural enterprises…as
we drove mile after mile past flat, fertile
fields toward the giant quick-freezing
plants. ‘I didn’t expect to see anything like
this till we got to Kansas,’ [Gray’s daugh-
ter] Mary Ellen said.”
It wasn’t long before the Gray family
exited New Jersey, anxious to discover the
sights of Delaware, Maryland and beyond,
but the article makes note of the unas-
suming nature of our area. “Far from look-
ing like a vital national artery in this cor-
ner of the Garden State,” Gray writes,
“U.S. 40 winds amiably along, ignoring the
pull of great cities to the north.”
Alas, there is no further mention of
Vineland or this area in Gray’s article.
However, an atlas map of the United
States included as a supplement to the
July 1961 issue is of local interest. In its
depiction of southern New Jersey,
between Camden and Atlantic City, the
atlas clearly labels Vineland’s location, not
very far from U.S. Highway 40. I

How To Take the Anxiety Out of Separation
By Jennifer Nelson, Assistant Director, DiBiase Preschool
The start of a new school year can be an exciting time for a lot of families. For
others, it may lead to feelings of apprehension and worry. One issue I've found
particularly relevant in the world of preschool education is separation anxiety.
While not all children struggle with extreme cases, some will experience at least a
slight sense of nervousness at the though of leaving their parents and the com-
forts of home. As educators and caregivers, we understand that one of our most
important jobs is to do all we can to make the transition from home to school as
natural as possible and we strongly encourage our new families to begin this
process at home.
Some things parents can do before sending their child off to school for the first
time might include:
* Verbal Preparation: Begin talking with your child about going to school as
soon as possible. This will give you time to answer any questions he/she may
have. You can also use this as an opportunity to get him/her excited about mak-
ing new friends, learning new things and having fun in a new environment.
* Take a Tour: Once your family has been assigned a preschool, make it a
point to pay a visit with your child. While you should be able to walk into any
facility unannounced, you may want to check in with the director to choose a time
that will allow your child to observe the classroom during one of the more active
parts of the day.
* Discuss the New Routine: Talk with your child about how he/she will be get-
ting to and from school and what time of day he can expect to be picked up.
Figuring out your routine and sticking to it may be one of the most important
things you can do in the way of offering assurance and providing a healthy level
of comfort to your child.
When the big day finally arrives, we encourage parents to allow for some wiggle-
room in their schedules so they can take the time they need to get their child set-
tled in the classroom before leaving for the day. We have also found that sending
new children to school with a special stuffed animal and/or family photo can pro-
vide some much-needed comfort during difficult moments. When it is time to say
"goodbye," it is important for parents to assure their child that they will have a won-
derful day and will be picked up just as soon as the school day comes to a close.
As an educator and parent, I have dealt with separation issues on a profession-
al and personal level. I can promise that as difficult as it may be for some to
make that initial break; it does get easier. Before you know it, your child will be
on his/her way to becoming an independent little learner. Good lunck to every-
one beginning this exciting new journey!
