PreSchool and Professional Parents

PreSchool is great for child development so why do professional parents feel so guilty about it?

Jamie Ladge (article below) explains the pressure to want to be a perfect person at work and a perfect parent too.

Half of the PreSchool parents at 82nd Street Academics are also proud of their diversity – two religions, two races, two languages, LGBT. Diversity is wonderful but it needs a safe space where diversity is appreciated.Diverse working professional families

What to do?

At 82nd Street, we are a safe space. Our staff and families embrace the creative atmosphere of child-centered development.  There’s a couple of family events for ‘meet and greets’ during the year.  And we keep the kids happy and developing. The room cameras, emails, and daily dropoffs and pickups make sure that you know how your child is progressing.

If problems occur, tell the teacher or the program director. We’ll make it right. We promise.

And if you’re not comfortable with your current PreSchool, you can come to 82nd Street.  We’ll accept your receipt for whatever you have already paid for this month at another center just to get you started. There is no substitute for the good feeling that your child is in a great place.
