What Is a Preschool Welcome Letter?  

A preschool welcome letter is a written message sent to the parents or guardians of newly enrolled preschoolers. It introduces the preschool staff and provides important information about the preschool program, schedule and policies.  

In addition, it's a great opportunity for the preschool staff to share their philosophy and approach to early childhood education. While most families are likely familiar with your preschool after the enrollment process, it’s a great idea to reintroduce them to your values and school mission. 

A preschool welcome letter to parents is also a way to establish open communication between parents and teachers, setting the stage for a positive and collaborative relationship throughout the school year.  

Ultimately, this letter is a critical part of any preschool enrollment or start of the school year packet as it’ll contain valuable information for parents and their little ones!

What Should a Preschool Welcome Letter Include? 

While you might think a preschool welcome letter is just a simple introduction to your preschool and the administrators and teachers, it can (and should) include a lot more! 

In some cases, it’s a great idea to: 

  • Highlight any special programs or curriculums you offer 
  • Provide information on how parents can stay involved in their child's education 
  • Set clear boundaries for communication with the school (and teachers) 

Along with an informative and engaging welcome letter, consider sending out a "welcome packet" full of important forms and resources for parents. The effort you put into creating a great first impression will pay off in building a successful partnership with families. 

Here are the basic elements of any great preschool welcome letter to help get you started as you craft your own. 


Let’s say your preschool plans on sending early childhood teacher welcome letters to the parents of children in their classrooms. 

In your introduction, be sure to include your background and experience in education, any special training or certifications you may have and any unique experiences or approaches you bring to teaching preschoolers.  

Additionally, mention any classroom policies or routines that parents and students should be aware of. And lastly, don't forget to introduce any additional staff members or teaching assistants who will be working with your students throughout the year. 

If you’re sending a more general welcome letter from the school itself, you can still follow these tips. Simply highlight your staff, their qualifications and how delighted you are to have their children at your preschool throughout the upcoming school year.

After the introduction, it’s a great idea to provide parents with information on how you will communicate with them throughout the year (and vice versa). This includes providing your email address and communication preferences. 

For example, if you will only respond to parent communications between the hours of 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. each weekday, let them know that. Likewise, let them know how they can get in touch with you or the school in case of an emergency. 

The goal here is to set some ground rules and boundaries for communication. As parents of preschoolers who are new to the school, many parents want to check in often. Let them know that their children are in good hands and that there will be set hours for check-ins. 

Finally, let them know how to schedule parent-teacher conferences if they need to. Explain if there are prescheduled days throughout the year where parents will get the chance to discuss their child’s development with their teacher. 

Helpful Resources or Materials 

Finally, any great preschool welcome letter should include information about helpful resources or materials. In today’s digital world where many teachers rely on technology for lesson plans, this often includes information about education platforms such as ClassDojo or Google Classrooms. 

In your preschool welcome letter to parents, provide information on all of the websites or resources you will use throughout the year. Then provide instructions on how to use each platform

Likewise, take the time to list any materials your children will need during preschool classes. Typically, this is a list of supplies. 



Best Practices for Writing Preschool Welcome Letters 

While you might understand what a preschool welcome letter to parents is, it also helps to understand the importance of writing a great welcome letter for your preschool. 

First impressions are everything, and that adage applies when it comes to your preschool welcome letter. The way you introduce yourself, your program and the facilities sets the tone for the rest of the school year and can lead to strong parent-teacher relationships.  

A great early childhood teacher welcome letter to parents for preschool sets the tone for the year. It also provides important information about policies, expectations and opportunities for parents to get involved in the classroom.   

This is why the welcome letter should be: 

  • Clear 
  • Informative 
  • Friendly 

Parents should feel welcomed and confident in their choice of preschool for their children.  

They want to know they made the right decision in sending their little one to your preschool. Make sure your welcome letter showcases all the amazing experiences their child will have while at your school.
