Traits of a Great Teacher

As we look back on our lives, there are always some teachers that stick out in our minds. Those teachers gave us confidence in our abilities and inspired us to do our best. They made school an amazing place to be.

As parents, we want our children to form those same happy memories about their own teachers. We rate schools based not on their academic rating, but on how caring and warm the teachers are. We expect teachers to be rock stars, because honestly, that’s what they should be.

A Sunny Start Preschool has a spectacular tradition of having the absolute BEST teachers around. We know what makes a great teacher because we see them at work everyday – loving on our students and giving them the wings they need to fly!

A teacher opens your eyes to the beauty of the world

“T” – T is for talented, trustworthy, and tough. A great teacher isn’t just one thing, he/ she is EVERYTHING.

“E” – E is for energy. How many times have you looked at your child’s teacher, hands and heart full, and said, “I could never chase after this many kids all day”?

“A” – A is for apples and oranges..and please and thank you. Good teachers show your child about much more than reading and arithmetic; they teacher them about good nutrition and manners, too!

“C” – C is for captain. Teachers are big leaders who make a huge difference in the world training little leaders who will one day change the world. No small task.

“H” – H is for heart. You really do need to have a huge heart to let 20 small humans occupy it’s space for a year, only to know you’ll need to say goodbye and go through the process again year after year.

“E” – E is for eloquent. Good teachers help your child acquire language naturally, by modeling proper grammar and speaking with an enhanced vocabulary.

“R” – R is for respect. Superior teachers give children the respect they need and deserve. They allow children to make choices and take responsibility for their actions. They set high expectations and expect them to be followed through.

SW miami dade preschool celebrates teacher appreciation week

Find a way to show your appreciation today!

As we wrap up Teacher Appreciation Week, we wanted to remind all of the parents out there that teachers are not to be forgotten. It’s not just about an end of the year gift or writing a thank you card, it’s about acknowledging the impact a great teacher will have on your child for years to come.

Tomorrow’s leaders are bred with a gentle nudge in the right direction, a loving hug proclaiming their self worth, and high expectations set from the very start. Thank a teacher today, for doing that and so much more!

Parent Testimonials

  • My daughter graduated from the school this year and started Kindergarten. Going into her fourth week of her big transition, her teachers informed me that she had an outstanding base from her preschool and is reading first grade level! A Sunny Start Preschool prepared my little girl in a spectacular way! The staff is very professional and family oriented not to mention superb state of the art facility. Needless to say I highly recommend the school!

    - Rocky, Dad of Natalia
  • I love love love this preschool/daycare! Very caring and loving staff and my oldest son loves going every day! I am so excited my twins also started a few months ago, they are so happy here as well. The teachers here are amazing! They genuinely care about the students and the woman in charge of curriculum for the school is always looking for new and great ways to teach the kids. I have 3 children at this school and could not be happier.

    – Samantha T. – Mom of Mason, Logan, and Olivia
  • My grandchildren have all attended A Sunny Start Preschool and this was the only preschool they attended. Three of the four are already in Elementary School and thanks to the foundation that they developed in this school, they are students with high grades. Thank you very much to all the teachers who are always attentive and patient with children. The quality of academics that children receive at this school is evident in their success.

    - Liliana, grandmother of Xavier, Jocey, Zander, and Amanda
  • I would recommend this school to any parent searching for a preschool with an excellent curriculum. My daughter is 7 years old and attended this preschool. After graduating from Pre K she tested advanced at her current Charter elementary school. Her teachers were impressed at her knowledge and how advanced her reading was. This school helped her read and went over all the subjects she needed to prepare her for Elementary. She recently tested for gifted this year by MDCPS. This was all due to the foundation she received here. The teachers are amazing and caring. Two of my friends that had their children here also tested for gifted. I am so happy with the school, the curriculum, the teachers, and the staff and now my son currently attends A Sunny Start Preschool. I would not go anywhere else.

    - Barbie, mom of Enzo and Sophia
  • I'm happy to have found this place. The attention is the best. The teachers are the best. My children learn something new every day. I wholeheartedly say to you that every child that goes through this program comes out a winner!

    – Gladys M, Mom of Denisse and Daniela
  • I recommended A Sunny Start Preschool to all whom have children from birth to 6 & more if they would take older.  I am a proud mother of very bright and advanced children thanks to the tutelage of Teacher Carmen, Milly, Angela, & Sofia. As you can see I have had an experience with every level of teacher in the school. I have a Kindergarten boy which I am proud to say is in K- 1 in his school. For those who do not know what K-1, this is where Kindergarten students are also being taught with 1st graders. My four year old is still at A Sunny Start Preschool and she is extremely bright. The curriculum in her class is incredibly advanced and even though I hate homework she is always excited and eager to do it. She can identify words and knows her numbers this also has to do with the fact she loves her school. All this and she has not yet started VPK because of her birthday, but she will be starting come this school year. Thank you Jennifer, Carmen, Milly, Angela, Sofia & Tatiana you guys are the best.

    – Gaby, mom of Zander and Amanda
