As a parent you do your best to “teach” your children well. You hope, even though they are like wild animals at home, that in public (at school) they are behaving themselves, or at least don’t act like they were raised by wolves.
You hope that children have empathy and are caring, kind and compassionate. You want you children to add something good to the world. That’s all Stephanie and I want (well that and maybe one night a month we’re it doesn’t take thirteen hours to get them to sleep). You hope that a little SEL can go a long way!
With that being said, I can say that today was one of those days where Jax did exactly that… he added good to someone’s life. We are so incredibly proud of this little boy! A special thanks to his teacher for a positive email home!
As we consider the possibility of sending Jackson to daycare here the four questions that were asked of us:
What are the 3 things you want your child to learn from our center: Compassion, inquiry, problem solving
What are your child’s favorite things: His Blankie and his brothers Buster and Max
What is the one thing about your child we should know?: He probably won’t ever know who takes care of him when he is 19 months old… He might not remember you by name… But he will remember you none the less. He will remember how you act, your body language and the tone of your voice. He won’t ever forget how you make him feel.
What do you expect from your child care center?Communication, Positive role models, and not sending him home with the wrong parent
