Welcome to the River School Blog!
We always love to hear from River School parents. When we get a note like this one from a parent, it means the world. This mother has her son in our infant care program.
Good Morning Miss Jane & Miss Sarah,
As the school year is coming to a close, and my son is starting to prepare for his new classroom, I felt compelled to write a note to share how utterly thankful I am to his teachers in the Tiny Tigers classroom at Exchange Place in Jersey City. As a new parent, it’s so very difficult to hand over your three month old child into the care of strangers, but putting him into the loving hands of the ladies in the Tiny Tigers classroom has proven to be an overwhelmingly positive experience. My son loves coming to River School, which is demonstrated by the leg kicks we can see coming from his stroller with the buzz of the doorbell every morning. He happily goes into the welcoming arms of Miss Shannel , Miss Norma or Miss Sharhonda and I can see the special bond they share. And although he is excited to see me at the end of the day, he’s more than content to keep playing with Miss Tia, Miss Erica or Miss Laniyah. It’s so fun to hang out for a few extra minutes during pick up and hear about their day and what new things he did.
Not only do I feel such gratitude for the excellent care that has been given to him, but also as a new parent, I’m so thankful for the helpful guidance they’ve provided to me along the way. I’ve learned so much from all of the ladies in that classroom, and I cannot thank them enough for helping me navigate this new role.
A transition awaits us soon, and I’m very sad to have to say goodbye to the ladies that I handed my baby over to. They will always hold a very special place in my heart. Thanks so much for this fantastic school and for providing my son with exceptional care.
