A New Preschool Year… And Some New Goals!Aug 25th, 2011 | By Joy Anderson | Category: Featured Articles, Parenting Advice
With each new preschool year, I recommit to making this year an even better one than last year in so many ways.
With my preschool parents, I want to give them such an amazing experience that they rave about us to all their friends. To never focus on the quantity of students, but the QUALITY of our program. To give them more than their money’s worth. To prove that our preschool is not just a safe place to drop off their child, but a place that will love, nurture, enrich, and engage their child with every ounce of energy we can possibly give. To offer advice to parents who need extra help with their children’s potty training, behavior problems, and overall parenting help. To support them in their own efforts at home, and to merge the gap between home and preschool, making it a seamless, comfortable transition.
With my preschool students, I want to love them unconditionally, and be there for them at every moment they need my guidance. To praise them when they do their best, to carefully nudge them in the right direction, to hold their hand as they try out new things. To make every hour at preschool some of their happiest moments of childhood.
With my preschool teachers, I want to give them every opportunity to succeed and feel proud of their teaching efforts. To reward them for a job well done. To provide a secure job where they know they could always stay if they wanted to. To offer such a job that is both rewarding and challenging, allowing them to grow in their own confidence.
And with my family, I want to get back to a simpler life. To sit by the river and listen to the calming water flow lazily across the rocks. To relax. To leave the computer and just be. with. them.
And with that, I will take my last goal and begin. Right now.
So here’s to a new year, a new you, and a new goal or two to strive for!
