Home Visit for Preschool??

We just signed our 4yr old up for preschool. The sign up packet seemed over stepping as is but then his new teacher left a message saying she needed to set up a home visit. Is this common? Why on earth do they need to come to our home?

I've never heard of it. Could it be a state requirement?

there are lots of schools districts that do this. it is just a way to get to know the child and family . it isn't a big deal. they don't go snopping.

My dd's school does home visits for all grades, but it is a charter school. The purpose is to help build relationships with the students.

Yes, if it's a public headstart anyway, mine did that as well.

when my kids when to a charter school they did that every year. i think its just to get to know parents and kids in their comfortable environment. some kids are shy, some parents are too busy. i didn't really like it because i felt that they were there to snoop in your house. they looked around to see if there was a 'quiet place' to do homework. then i realized that i could say no, and just met up with them at the open house before school started.

It's because children are more comfortable in their own environment.

I work for a private school and we do home visits. It's for our teachers and families to get better acquainted in a familiar environment for the child.
