When my son came to KinderCare for his first time, he was enrolled into Miss Suzanne’s prekindergarten classroom when he had just turned four. Although he was enrolled in another daycare setting, we had to make a pretty sudden transition to KinderCare in the middle of the year. After a few weeks of attending KinderCare, I had my first conference with Miss Suzanne. I wanted to check in with her to see how he was settling into her classroom. I was eager to know how my son was clicking with his new classmates and teacher. After this first conference, I was beyond impressed with Miss Suzanne. Her love of learning is abundantly clear, because she doesn’t just view KinderCare as just a daycare center where she’s there to make sure the children are fed and play all day. Rather, she truly feels that each child has a huge potential so her job is to help them exceed that potential. She is dedicated to fostering a nurturing learning environment where kids can really grow into lifelong learners.
Over the past year and a half, my son has progressed so much in many ways. He has been fortunate enough to have Miss Suzanne remain as his teacher, because she moved with her prekindergarten students up to the kindergarten classroom. Every day, I am truly amazed at what my son is learning. He shares with me what he has learned, like Abraham Lincoln, plots to books they have read as a class, fun facts about planets. Just this morning, he told me, “Mom, yesterday at school, I told Miss Suzanne that she is the best teacher ever!” As a result of Miss Suzanne’s teachings, he is learning to have empathy and care with regards to his actions. When he does a positive action, he feels proud. At times, when he has done a negative action, he understands that he should strive to do better.
Miss Suzanne truly takes the time to get to know each of her students and to make sure she understands the best way they learn. She understands that every child will respond to the things differently, and she understands what she needs to do to make an impression on her students. She also really understands the way kids think and feel about things, so she relates to them appropriately.
Furthermore, her love of books is infectious. Miss Suzanne constantly shares new and exciting books with her class. She finds ways to bring these stories into all of the subject areas she teaches. Thanks to Miss Suzanne, my son knows that children’s books have both an author and an illustrator, and what those things mean!
I am part of a local mother’s club with over 800 members. There are always moms who are looking for the best of everything and ask other members for recommendations. Whenever anyone is looking for childcare for younger children or kindergarten, I am always the first to shout from the rooftops that people should look at KinderCare on Low Street. Miss Suzanne has been a huge reason of that. I feel like her teaching rivals any other kindergarten program in our area, and that kids would be extremely lucky to have her as a teacher!
Miss Suzanne is always there to life children up, to help them be the best they can be. For that, I am so grateful. I know the effects of having Miss Suzanne as a teacher will last a lifetime.
