I have been busy with both my kids’ schools lately. Besides the usual homework and after school activities, I also commit quite a bit of time to helping in both their classes. I feel it helps show them how important school is to us and how proud we are of them to be students.
I spend most of my time at my daughter’s preschool. I have always enjoyed photographing the beautiful children that attend there. Both M1 & M2 have loved this school and I have too. I often complain and worry about the hours of commitment it demands but every time I set the hours aside and step into preschool mode, I am rewarded by this special little school’s energy.
The directors (teachers) there are amazing and let the kids be kids. They nurture their curiosity, playfulness, creativity and intelligence. They encourage engagement by carrying on open ended conversations instead of just saying “Good Job!” to everything the kids do. There is so much wisdom and sage advice for parents at this school so not just the children are growing and learning here.
I am blessed to be a part of it and will never regret spending the extra time and energy immersed in my children’s early education.
