Children in preschool spend a minimum of four hours a day with their teacher. This is the person who will lay the foundation of little Keshia’s or Tyrone’s education, and just as importantly, how he or she feels about the experience of school.
As a preschool parent, you might breathe a sigh of relief when you get to drop your child off in the morning, but are you providing the best support you can?

Take an honest look at your behaviour, and decide if you belong in the dunce’s corner or deserve a shiny gold star in the middle of your forehead.

Which sounds most like you?
Da boss
“Look, I know my child best, and he is just not going to be happy sitting in a circle. Can’t you change the system so he can sit in a row instead? I want you to call me at 10am every day and give me a report on how much lunch he's eaten. He has a delicate stomach.”

Are you Da boss?

Teacher’s pet
“Hi, here’s the sponsorship form for next week’s fun walk. Can I help prepare the snacks for the gathering afterwards? By the way, I’ve noticed that Keshia has started colouring in more tidily now since you started helping her with her pencil grip, how can I support that activity more?”

Naughty nightmare
“Ooh, sorry we’re so late, I couldn’t find a lunchbox, here’s a packet of noodles, you don’t mind cooking them for Tyrone, do you? And listen, I’m pissed off that he was blamed for the punch-up yesterday, where’s the little bastard who started it?”

The ghost
“What’s the teacher’s name again? Where’s the classroom?”
*Engine noise* as you screech out of the carpark.
