United Christian Parish Preschool


Our preschool will be marching in the Annual Reston Holiday Parade on Friday November 29 (day after thanksgiving). This is a super fun way for us to get the word out about our amazing school and meet and connect with members of our school family. Please see the below for more info: Parade planners ask that ALL children under 5 be secured in strollers or wagons to insure that the parade can keep its pace. The parade lineup will be staged in Hyatt Park (the grassy area with trees in front of the Hyatt Hotel). Our group is number 16 in the lineup and we are asked to arrive NO LATER than 10:30AM. Our group will be holding two banners so you can find us easily. Family and friends visiting from out of town are more than welcome to accompany our preschool families in marching in the parade! Please contact Kate Tylenda at [email protected] with any parade questions

We celebrated Christmas with Pastor Beth in the sanctuary this week. We arrived to the empty manger and Pastor Beth told us the Christmas Story. The children dressed as angels and shepards and took their places in the story. We sang hymns together with our parents and finally welcomed Baby Jesus to His sweet bed. Merry Christmas from our School Family! (Photo cred to Miss Jen)

Here’s a great tip for teachers this week! Holiday season can often make kids struggle with the normal routines.... late nights out with festivities, different diet of treats and sweets, constant excitement over what’s to come, etc. We can always count on our Conscious Discipline skills to help!

After returning from several days off of school, children and adults may need more opportunities for connection than usual. With that in mind, our Conscious Commitment for this week is: "I am willing to increase opportunities for connection this week by implementing two rituals in my classroom or home."

Are you willing to commit? If so, post "ImWillingRU" in the comments and share which rituals you will try or that you already do. #iHeartCD #connection #rituals

Way to go UCPP!

Happy Thanksgiving to the friends and families of UCPP. Our extraordinary school could not be the success it is without you. And to our amazing staff, you ARE the heart of our school. Our thanks to you is immeasurable!

Conscious Discipline®

“Why don't we include 'please' and 'thank you'? Shouldn't we be teaching kids manners?"
Check out this clip from Master Instructor Kim Jackson, who describes the difference between requests (where the child has a choice), and commands (where the child does not have a choice) to see how including "please/thank you" may open the door to power struggles if used in the wrong type of direction.
You will be so surprised how this little shift in your words change your voice and allows your child to know exactly what to do. Wishing you well!

A common question we get in regards to assertive commands is, "Why don't we include 'please' and 'thank you'? Shouldn't we be teaching kids manners?"

Check out this clip from Master Instructor Kim Jackson, who describes the difference between requests (where the child has a choice), and commands (where the child does not have a choice) to see how including "please/thank you"may open the door to power struggles if used in the wrong type of direction.

Parents and educators learning together! What a beautiful thing! #iheartCD #consciousdiscipline #professionaldevelopment #parentsupport

Tonight is our first of the year parent education workshop with Mandy Lloyd, our amazing certified Conscious Discipline trainer! We are looking forward to teaching our parents the vocabulary and skills we use everyday on our classrooms. Let us know if you want to learn more!

Conscious Commitment of the Week: "I am willing to use my assertive voice and tone when giving directions to children this week.” Assertiveness is clear communication that focuses children's attention on what we want them to do. Clear communication is essential for children to meet our expectations and for setting limits respectfully.

The Sleeptime Consultant has some great ideas to help your child adjust to a new sibling. Kendra is a new friend of UCPP and we encourage you to reach out to her and/or follow her on Facebook!

The birth of a new sibling is a very exciting and unsettling time for your toddler/preschooler. There is a lot of guilt mothers feel after the new baby - guilt for not being able to give their first “baby” the attention they have always received. Sometimes, the guilt we feel, makes way for letting a few of the old expectations we had in place slide because we are feeling sorry for the adjustment our older child is going through. You may notice changes in your child during the day and changes around sleep. Your toddler may act out more as they get accustomed to the birth of their new sibling, and often times test limits. To help them feel more secure, it is important to keep consistent boundaries. ⁣

If the older sibling was a solid sleeper, there may be a regression after a new baby is born. Here are some tips to help your older child with this change:⁣

1. Prepare your older child for the new baby by reading many books about becoming an older sibling, and have your older child “help” prepare by involving them in the process. ⁣
2. Keep the bedroom routine step-by-step, predictable, and consistent. This can be an excellent bonding opportunity. ⁣
3. Keep the same rules during the day and night. This will help your child feel more secure. If your child starts making “extra” requests, do not give in, as they are trying to test the boundaries. Setting limits will reassure your child. ⁣
4. If your older child calls for your in the middle of the night or comes into your bedroom, take emotion out of your voice, with minimal talking, tell them to go back to sleep. Do not give this too much attention or they will continue this trend. A toddler clock works great, reminding them it’s not time to wake up yet. ⁣
5. Spend at least 20 minutes of uninterrupted one-on-one time, with your older child, focusing solely on them, without the baby around.⁣
6. Breathe. Cut yourself some slack. You are doing a great job and everything will settle again soon.

Many of our staff wore their cardigan for World Kindness Day today but, as many preschool days go, we didn’t get to our cameras until it was time to go home! Miss Jo and Miss Ginger were still smiling and spreading kindness as they left for the day! Hope everyone felt the love around them today! #worldkindessday #mrrogers #itsabeautifuldayintheneighborhood #wontyoubemine #cardigan #bekind

If you know UCPP, you know how much we admire and respect Fred Rogers. We will all be wearing our favorite cardigan to celebrate tomorrow!! Join us on spreading kindness all day!

Popsicles may not be your first choice in cold weather, but our Friday Fun students were happy to celebrate their last day with a friend who is moving away. It’s so hard to say goodbye so we say “we will always remember ....”. We will always remember this particular friend for his imaginative play and, of course, this special chilly treat! He will always be a part of his School Family and will be wished well each day all school year.

At UCPP, we take outdoor play SERIOUSLY! It truly is our second classroom and our teachers make sure all of our curriculum goals are represented just as they do in their inside classrooms. We have a gorgeous outdoor play space, with traditional play equipment, sand and mud sensory areas, and lots and lots of space to run! As a NAEYC accredited and VA Quality school, safety is our main priority, with safety inspections regularly and a locked perimeter fence system.

Being mindful this week will help adults and children more than you realize!

With all the hustle and bustle of activities, costumes, and parties this week, there's bound to be moments of upset and disappointment when things don't go as we expected them to. 🎃 With that in mind, our focus for this week is acceptance.

"This week I am willing to practice acceptance. When upset occurs, or things don't go the way I expected, I will say, 'The moment is as it is.' Then I will breathe, relax, and solve the problem."

Are you willing? Post "ImWillingRU" in the comments. As always, we wish you well! #mondaymotivation #iHeartCD #acceptance #halloween
