Our preschoolers spend a lot of time at school or daycare with their teacher and their relationship with us is important for a successful school year and for their professional growth. Keep reading for four things your preschooler’s teacher wish you knew to help build a great relationship with them this school year.
We Love Your Child Like Our Own
We aren’t preschool teachers for the fame and fortune; we are preschool teachers because we love children. Loving your child as our own becomes second nature after spending so much time with them. We are aware of the boundaries and we promise we are never trying to replace you, their parents!
We Want to Talk to You
We spend a lot of time with your preschooler and we are happy to tell you all about their days. However, we have lives outside of preschool or daycare, just like you have a life outside of being a parent. We would love to connect with you on this personal level in addition to connecting with your child.
We Wish You’d Keep Your Sick Child Home
We have all been there, wanting to bring a sick child to school or daycare because we can’t take another day off or just have to get some work done. However, bringing a sick child can infect the other children and it can infect teachers, too, putting the whole classroom and school at a disadvantage. Please consider keeping your child home and remember we are going to call you in a couple hours when the medicine has worn off anyways.
We Need Your Involvement
In addition to being teacher, we are also a friend, mediator, janitor, waitress, and nurse in our classrooms! We need all the assistance we can get and truly love and appreciate the time and resources donated by our student’s parents. We really couldn’t do this job without you!
Keeping these four things in mind as you head into a new school year with some new teachers for your child! We hope these help you develop a great relationship with your child’s teacher right from the start.
