Dear Parents,

                We would like to welcome you and your child to JAMtowne Preschool. It is our privilege to have your child attend this wonderful program and we look forward to an exciting year. 

                     It is our goal to provide the very best preschool experience for your child. If you have any questions or concerns at any time during the year, please contact a teacher or director. We welcome any and all comments and suggestions in hopes of benefiting our preschool.

                    The preschool years are exciting and important times in our children’s lives. We encourage you to participate in your child’s school activities as often as possible for nothing can replace time spent with your child! Remember, childhood should be a journey and not a race. JAMtowne is honored to be a part of your child’s journey.
