Editor: While the letters to the editor are often flooded with complaints about the education system and child care in B.C., I thought it was timely to share how much we love our neighbourhood school and daycare.
This letter goes out to all the staff at Parkside Centennial Elementary and Precious Moments Daycare in Aldergrove, both of which my Grade 2 son has attended since Kindergarten. From the start, the administration, teachers and support staff at Parkside Elementary and Precious Moments Daycare continue to awe us with their caring, patience, and love for our son.
When he is at school and daycare, he feels safe, cared for and special, which enables him to take risks and learn. The staff at both the school and the daycare work tirelessly to understand our son and better support him, so that he experiences academic, emotional and social success.
As his parents, we are very involved in his school and daycare life which has helped to create a very open relationship with all of his teachers. Parkside Elementary is a school with a large population, serving students with diverse needs and ethnic, social and economic backgrounds. We are very grateful that our son experiences this diversity in such a positive and grounded environment.
Thank you again to the entire staff of Parkside Centennial Elementary and Precious Moments Daycare. We are so grateful to have you in our son’s life.
