Essential qualities of Little Scholars preschool teachers

Highly trained classroom staff is what you should pay attention to when making a well-informed decision. Preschool education is not something that anyone can go into. Thus, Little Scholars may be your smartest choice as our preschool teachers are:

  • Patient: facing daily challenges, great caregivers should have plenty of patience to teach kids with different levels of development without getting riled up.
  • Flexible: dealing with unforeseen situations is a must-have skill for every preschool teacher since anything can happen, so the ability to respond quickly and wisely can help to tackle any challenge.
  • Dedicated: a good specialist knows how to inspire and motivate even the smallest ones. Only excellent and passionate daycare Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn educators will give your child great care and take care of his/her future.
  • Compassionate: to feel deeply for all little students as they experience the ups and downs associated with education and development is a part of our job. Teachers will support your kids in their strivings, first success and failure.
  • Innovative: our specialists will find a solution to any challenge and come up with fresh ideas on how to interact with the entire group, so everyone is valued. We continue to discover and devise new approaches and methods to ensure that every kid gets the best possible learning experiences.

Benefits of daycare Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn

Continuous care. The development process at Little Scholars is aimed at gradually acquiring new skills and improving existing ones. Physical, cognitive, social and emotional development is of high importance for our daycare specialists.

Education and development. Focusing on learning and healthy growth, we offer a stimulating and well-thought curriculum: physical activity, free time, music classes, quiet time, educational programs and games. Our task is to stimulate cognitive functions and memory by offering imaginative and creative games for kids. We awaken a thirst for knowledge.

Affordability. Daycare Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn services are less expensive than hiring in-home caregivers or nanny. So while you are busy at work, your child is busy with learning how to communicate, work in a team, and express opinions.  

Age-appropriate activities. All material and toys are age-appropriate. A well-organized learning and playing areas promote children’s cognitive development, strong personality building, unleashing talents, and shaping skills, knowledge, and world perception. It is unacceptable for Sheepshead Bay daycare such as Little Scholars to ignore the needs of kids. Thus, we involve each child in outdoor activities, music, art activities, and games. So parents can rely on us.

Safe and healthy environment. Your child won’t be exposed to illness and bacteria, as cleanliness and hygiene our top priorities.

Professionalism, friendliness, and communication are three fundamental aspects of our work. We support children’s curiosity, exploration, and the desire to comprehend new things by providing them the appropriate educational resources and gamified learning methods.

Staff

Ms. Khosid
HEAD TEACHER

My name is Nina Khosid. I am the Educational Director of Wave Childcare/ Little Scholars Childcare Center III. I hold a BA in Early Childhood Education, Dual Master’s Degree and Certification (Licence) in Early Childhood and Special Education. Children have been a part of my life since 1975 when I got my first job as a preschool teacher.Then I served as an toddler/preschool teacher,Educational director,Special Education Itinerant Teacher. I worked with kids with special needs,who really needs love and help. I have been trained in ABA and Floor Time Therapy. I have been in Early Childhood Education for over fourty years and throughly believe that preschool is an essential step to building the foundation of a child’s future. I always remember “Tell me and I forget.Teach me and I remember.Involve me and I Learn”-Benjamin Franklin. My philosophy of education for young children has been influenced by the theoories and principles of child development and education pioneers such as Piaget,Vygotsky.I believe that young children learn and grow through experiencing the word around them.Their senses play an important role in how they get information,process that information and construct knowledge about their world. I always keep in mind Albert Einstein’s words “Play is the highest form of research”. Through both structured and spontaneous play experiences,young children develop skills and understand concepts related to all areas of development. Developing the “ whole” child means for me not just adressing academic growth but physical,emotional and social growth as well.I believe that children need experiences that allow them to test out their skills and apply their knowledge in practical and meaningful ways.Learning during early years of life is not a race for information;it is rather a walk of discovery. Parents are always welcomed as we are partners in caring for our children.I invite parents to share ideas,give feedback and get involved through volunteerism and participation in school events.

Ms. Mia
TEACHER’S ASSISTANT

My name is Mia and I totally enjoy working with children. That’s how I decided to become an assistant teacher. I just loved the thought of waking up and knowing today I am going to see them learn, help them learn and see them achieve and solve problems. I love dance with them and read stories. This creative and positive classroom atmosphere makes my heart warm.

Ms. Sholonov
TEACHER

My name is Tamara Sholonov, I’m a teacher and a proud mom of 2 kids. I moved to U.S form Israel in 2003 and I speak English, Russian and Hebrew. I earned my Bachelor Degree in Early Childhood and I worked with children for the past 3 years, I felt I have the patience to show them the right way. The teacher should be an excellent example of high values and be a worthy role model for children. My goal as a teacher is to give children a great education and I believe that in providing a variety of learning there should be social interaction, cooperative learning, hands-on experiences, and real-life applications. My final thought comes from Harry Wong who said, “ The single greatest achievement is not race, it is not poverty- it is the effectiveness of the teacher.”

Ms. Marina
TEACHER’S ASSISTANT

My name is Marina and I from Latvia. I have 2 beautiful kids. I love babies since my childhood and this love has preserved so far. I’m happy working with infants, the most joyful thing in this hard work is seeing the first meaningful smile, the first step and wide open arms lifted to you. I like to teach them crawl and eat with a spoon, just to love and take care of them. And a sad part is when they move to the older group and at the same time rejoice how much you taught them in such a short time. It’s nice to hear words of gratitude from their parents for my love and care invested in their children.

Ms. Roksolana
FRONT DESK

My name is Roksolana, I was born in Ukraine but I lived most of my time in Italy. My job is receptionist and I believe my role is to be the first impression of the Day Care and to provide a warm and inviting experience for parents, visitors, and my fellow employees as they enter and exit the building. I hope to make a positive and lasting first impression that elicits a good memory of our Little Scholars Center 3. It’s rewarding seeing children talk and walk for a first time, it makes me nostalgic and emotional remembering my own child. I see coming and leaving kids everyday, it’s pleasant to hear when they say “hi” and “bye” with the smile on their faces. It’s heart warming to see when they meet their parents with wide open arms, it’s pure love.
