EDCDC consider themselves extremely lucky to have a career that they are passionate about! It is a welcome challenge, and a joy to teach at this level. Kindergarten children have a way of lighting up a room with imagination and curiosity, making the days brighter. Our teachers truly enjoy the challenges and the newness of each day. We touched so often by a child’s honesty, boldness, humor, creativity, and tenderness. It is our belief teaching is not a job – it’s a privilege!
Be assured that we will do my best to make this school year an enjoyable time for your child, but also a time filled with real learning. Please do not think your child will be just "playing" all day! The skills we practice daily in kindergarten are the building blocks for your child's future success in school and in life.
We look forward to taking many adventures in learning with your child. We value your involvement and believe we can better teach your child when working in a partnership with you and your family.
Parent/teacher communication is extremely important to each child's academic and social success in kindergarten. Therefore, consistent, positive communication with the families of my students is one of my top priorities. EDCDC views parents as partners, and biggest allies, in education. You know your child better than anyone, and we value all that we can learn from you! We welcome your questions and applaud your involvement, knowing that by showing an interest in your child's school experience you will leave a very positive, lasting impression on your child.
As with all of our classrooms, Kindergarten has an open-door policy and invite you to be an important part of our kindergarten adventure!
We will guide and encourage your child, celebrating each step of the way as he or she gains a love of learning, self-confidence, and the academic skills that form a foundation for continued success. We pledge to care for each child’s individual and social needs throughout the year and show them that school is a safe and consistent place to learn and explore. We love teaching and look forward to caring for, supporting, and encouraging your child daily as we embark on the wonderful adventure of learning.
