Your Child’s New Teacher

It starts like any other day. You arrive at your child’s preschool, ready for another mundane Monday. Suddenly, you are awaken from your early morning daze when you walk through the doors and are greeted by an unfamiliar face. In place of your child’s caregiver is a smiling new teacher. Where has your child’s teacher gone? Who is this new person? And why do you feel the sudden urge to run away with your child tucked firmly under your arm?

New teacher? No problem!

Change is difficult under any circumstance. When it comes to protecting our children, we view change as the great disruption that can alter the course of their lives forever. We take pride in planning every detail of their lives. We look at the departure of a familiar teacher like a separation from a family member. We take it personally and we take it seriously – because it is the ultimate example that we are not in complete control over our children’s lives.

Parents take pride in picking the perfect preschool with the perfect teachers. Parents, however, can’t control every facet of their chosen preschool. Changes happen. Teachers leave, the lunch menu changes, the uniform policy becomes more strict. As a parent, you can remain confident in the choice you made for your child as long as your preschool’s philosophy of education remains in line with yours. Is the center still held to high quality standards? Is the facility still safe and secure? Do you feel that the administration of the preschool is hands on and involved in your child’s education? If so, you can feel confident that your child’s new teacher is going to be held to the same high standards as the old one, and you can feel confident dropping them off each day.

Child care center promotes positive friendships

You know when your child is happy. Follow their lead and stay positive!

But is teacher turnover normal? Should you be worried? Should you be upset?

The fact is that the child care industry is not a lifelong career for many employees; and unfortunately this includes some of the best teachers you may know. In a never ending mission to keep child care affordable for parents, staff salaries are also relatively low, particularly when compared to elementary and middle school teachers.

Teachers are people, too. They are people who want to advance in their careers and provide the best for their family. Sometimes, they move on to new career opportunities after completing their higher education. Other times, they are bound by family commitments such as new babies or elderly parents who need their care. Although the change may seem like an inconvenience for your family, it is important to take your former teacher’s feelings and needs into account before passing judgment.

A great teacher weighs the pros and cons of leaving their students quite heavily. They are likely missing your family as much as you are missing them. Remember your child’s old teacher with fondness, and look back on your time together with gratitude and happiness. In the same way, look forward to the great time’s your child will have with their new teacher. A new teacher can offer new activities, new perspectives, and new inspiration.

Stay positive. New adventures can seem scary at first, but they aren’t a negative thing. Let go and let your new child’s new teacher lead you down a new, exciting path.

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.

  • 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.
