I'll start by saying I love my DDs Kindy teacher, and the teachers aid. They are lovely people who interact with the children beautifully.
I'm just not sure about the communication between parents and teachers. Almost all other schools have a communication diary for parents and teachers to communicate. I have seen this work really well with great success. I was expecting this sort of communication with my daughters teacher and teachers aids.
However it appears the school hasn't adopted this communication technique. I was asked to write my email address down for the teacher, so she could "keep us up to date with the happenings in the Kindy room" but I'm unsure if this is how the teacher will communicate with me? I doubt it, seemed more for a newsletter type thing.
Anyway, DD has been there now for two half days, and two full days. Each time I have attempted to talk to either the teacher or the aid but they have appeared too busy, or a bit disinterested. Today I attempted to talk to the aid, and she walked off.
I have no idea how DD is going in kindy, I don't know if she has friends, I don't know how she is going with the tasks, I don't even know how she is going with eating her lunch and using the toilet. Of course I ask her, but she either doesn't know or is very vague.
I'm not sure if I am being a bit precious regarding this?
Also, last week when we picked DD up she had a necklace they made around her neck. What bothered me was the aid came over and took it off DD and have it to another girl, who already had a necklace. The aid said to my DD she would find her necklace, if not they will make a new one. DD was quite upset that she didn't have a necklace to take home and couldn't understand why they took her necklace away from her, and have it to someone who already had hers?
