NIERMAN PRESCHOOL WELCOME & REQUIRED STEPS TO COMPLETE REGISTRATION

REGISTRATION DAY – JULY 11TH 8:30 AM – 5:30 PM


Welcome to Nierman Preschool 2017-18 school year! We are excited about the upcoming year and all the enriching programs for our preschoolers and families. May it be a year filled with growth, creativity, good health, and friendships for all of us!

The information below is VERY IMPORTANT!  Please take the time to read through the materials provided below to ensure that your child is fully registered with a complete and accurate file.

Confirmation Packet #2:  We have made every effort to improve the process of submitting preschool forms to be as easy and efficient as possible. Please review the forms and flyers carefully--there are many choices and opportunities for you and your children’s participation as well as policies with which to become familiar. New this year: all enrichment classes and food programs are easily accessible for on-line registration.

New students received an initial confirmation with forms required by the State of California as well as additional Nierman Preschool forms. For those of you who have not yet returned the papers or have misplaced the originals (e.g. ID and Emergency Information, Personal Rights, Physician’s Form, etc.), please refer to FORMS PACKET 2 for “New Students Only” where you can complete the writeable pdf forms on-line for your convenience. Make sure to print these out, sign and return them to the Preschool Office as soon as possible and no later than Registration Day.  

New and returning students should review Forms Packet 1. Any changes to your contact information since you submitted your application? It is most important that we can reach you!  Visit www.lfjcc.org/psupdate to make any changes (e.g. address, phone, e-mail, pediatrician, pick-up authorization, etc.) to your school file. You must use your JCC login information to access your account. DO NOT MAKE A NEW ACCOUNT.  If you need help, please contact the JCC front desk at (858) 457-3030.

Steps for Updating:
Go to www.lfjcc.org/psupdate
Put in your email and password (from initial registration)
Where it says “Member (or Non-Member),” select the number of your children who are attending Nierman Preschool.
Click “Purchase.”
Once you are in your account, select your child’s name to update any necessary information.
Click “Submit” to update any fields.

 o NOTE: Pediatrician’s Field must be completed – required by State law.

Click “Submit” when done.
Repeat these steps for each of your children attending Nierman Preschool.

The Confidential History for New and Returning Students provides valuable information to teachers. These required forms are part of FORMS PACKET 1 and can be completed on the writeable pdf, printed, and returned to the Preschool Office by Registration Day.

Forms Packets 3 and 4 include optional extended day and food
programs. Please sign-up for enrichments, lunches, and challah on-line (look for quick links to Enrichments, Kid Konnection (KK), and Preschool Food on the Preschool’s Webpage Quick links sidebar, or below with the Forms Packets). To ensure that your reservations are received and processed on time, please turn prior to Registration Day.

Forms Packet 5 and 6 contain important parent involvement and information including our calendar and special dates. Please consider volunteering! It’s a wonderful way to make new friends and community while being actively involved in your child’s education. Review all the opportunities and complete and print-out the Parent Volunteer Form and return to the Preschool Office by Registration Day.

We welcome any questions to help facilitate your return of these forms. Use the Nierman Preschool Confirmation Packet 2 Forms page below as a reference. If your child has special needs or you would like an opportunity to
 
speak privately with the Director or Teacher, please call the School Office at 858.362.1171 to set up an appointment. We look forward to greeting you at our ALL PARENTS MANDATORY Registration Day on Tuesday, July 11th when we will be open from 8:30 am – 5:30 pm to confirm your student’s file is
