After picking up my child from KinderCare today I reflected on how much 2 of the teachers there have had an impact on my child. I wanted to take the time out to share a little bit about my child and her experience at KinderCare.
My daughter began attending KinderCare last spring 2011. She was in the two-year old classroom with Ms. Karen. When she first began there she was a shy and timid little girl. However, her teacher, Ms. Karen, was an integral part of bringing out the fun-loving, out-going girl she's come to be. Ms. Karen made every day a fun day! Arianna, my daughter, began to talk about the things she did each day, the activities she participated in, and always, always talked about Ms. Karen. Each day I picked her up I was presented with art projects, drawings, or pictures of what Arianna did that day. It was great to "see" what my daughter did all day without me there to see it personally. To this day, although she is now in the three-year old classroom, my daughter makes it a priority to visit Ms. Karen before leaving school each day. Ms. Karen went above and beyond her teaching duties and actually became a part of my child's life as I see she does with all of the children in her classroom. My child is not the only one that has to run to Ms. Karen's room each day before leaving! Ultimately I've realized that Ms. Karen was more than just a teacher at KinderCare and I'm thankful that she was such a great influence and wonderful care provider for my child. Now that Arianna is in the three-year old classroom Ms. Rachel has become a part of our dinner conversation each night! Since my daughter has been with Ms. Rachel I've noticed her taking a big interest in learning, specifically writing. She brings home "homework" and artwork and other projects that she completes in the classroom. She loves to show me how she writes her name, knows her alphabet, sings songs, and all of the other things she learns each day. She's found a love of painting and always reminds me that "sharing" is important...(ha-ha). Although, there are certain KinderCare policies that I disagree with, I have to say that the quality of Teachers that KinderCare employs is exceptional. It is because of the teachers that I would not take my child anywhere else. It is because of teachers like Ms. Karen and Ms. Rachel that children enjoy going to school. It is because of teachers like them that I know my child is in the best care while I have to be at work. And it is because of them that I had to write this and say thank you for giving my child wonderful experiences and a great foundation of learning to build upon.
