Opportunities to explore nature with preschoolers

Play is a universal language. Play is our favorite way to learn at The Oaks! When thinking about playing in nature I’m immediately taken back to my childhood and the freedoms I was given. I was the kid that was outside all day and only

To the TOCA Family

From the time Lulo started at the Silly Squirrels class with Ms Rachel, I could tell that we found a place that is full of love and encouragement. Even walking down the hallway, the energy of warmth and positive affirmations to be poured into my child throughout the day is palpable.
Lulo has grown in leaps and bounds since all of you at TOCA NC have “co- parented” with us. There is always a friendly face willing to assist and make recommendations whenever we need it. I have even had the pleasure of speaking to other parents as well.

Please allow us to take this time to let you all know that we appreciate you, with a special mention to Ms Shannon, Ms Colleen, Ms Rachel, Ms Chloe, Ms Kim, Ms Bree, Ms Jessie and Ms Jenn.

With lots of love from the Matsheke Family

🐝 "I cannot say enough wonderful things about Ms. Kim and Ms. Teresa. Rock has had one and/or both of them since he started at The Oaks at age 2, and if I could I’d take them with us to kindergarten. They have been unbelievably patient, kind, and generous in helping him to learn and grow. They always encourage him to be his absolute best, and I have seen such a transformation in him since we started here. They are so creative and make learning so fun and joyful for the kids. It is apparent when someone truly feels a calling and loves what they do, and this is the case with Ms Teresa and Ms Kim. They were born to be teachers, and our lives have been forever blessed by having them in it"

🐸 "We LOVE Ms. Chloe and Ms. Allee !! Whenever we say their name Maddox jumps up and down, excitedly shouting their name. He can “sing” his ABCs and knows most of his numbers (he is 2). I don’t know how his teachers handle his never ending amount of energy. Their patience was still seen at the end of the day for pickup. We appreciate and love our teachers!!" 🐸

Love, The Yackey Family

Ms. Jacquie ❤️ is a smiling face every morning! She is positive, friendly, and loves our kids so hard! Our favorite thing about Ms. Jacquie is that she challenges our kids daily- she knows what they are capable of and helps them to find their inner confidence that is so important in life!

Our favorite thing about Ms. Imelda ❤️ is how much love she brings to the infant room! She learns each individual child's behaviors and treats them all like her own. She has not only aided in our son's development, but really took her time in learning how to help him, and what works best for him, specifically, and we have no doubt that she has helped him gain his confidence.

Our favorite thing about Ms. Courtnie ❤️is that she encourages the kids to be themselves! She is so much fun and caters to each child's individual needs. Brynley's favorite part about Ms. Courtnie is when she hugs her and they play hair salon.

Ms. Jessi ❤️ is so much fun and smiling every single day! Our favorite thing about Ms. Jessi is that she is always encouraging the kids to laugh at themselves! She fosters such an inclusive classroom where our values as a family are reinforced. Brynley's favorite part about Ms. Jessi is when she lets her sing Anna.

“Ms Rachel, thank you so much for greeting us every morning with a wonderful smile and such a positive attitude. We are so grateful to have you in Henry’s classroom — he has grown and learned so much from you!”

“Ms. Amber, you are such a calming and loving presence! You made Henry’s transition to the Squirrels so much easier — he feels so at ease when you are there, and has learned so much from you. Thank you for everything!”

“Ms. Kayla, thank you for always being the bright and smiling face that greets us when we pick up Henry! We love seeing how you play and care for the kids so well — they are always smiling and laughing with you. Thank you for being so wonderful!”

-The Judge Family ❤️❤️

Ms. Kim: 🐝 For passionately loving your job and the kids, mine has been so lucky to be loved by you and because of that he's grown so much in many aspects. We can't be thankful enough, we are sure we owe you much of who he's become because of his journey with you. For always having time for a chat about how he's doing.

Ms. Teresa: 🐝 For always seeing the positive side of all situations and our kids. For understanding how hard it is to be them sometimes, and always being so compassionate and loving. Because of that our boy has matured a lot and learned stuff I was worried he wouldn't. For never denying me any feedback or a chat on his progress.

Ms. Imelda A. Berry: 🐰 For having a sweet love for the babies and being there for them when they want mommy but she's not there.

Ms. Jacquie: 🌳 Shout out to her for her commitment to TOCA and how much she loves our kids specially my baby. Always there with a good face and sharing her optimism.

All: 🌳 For being an awesome team dedicated to caring our children, supporting each other and in doing so giving a great example to our kids. For sharing your heart ti so many classrooms, families and children.

Ms. Colleen: 🌳 For venturing yourself into helping so many working families and doing so with love and belief. For having an open door. We're grateful for TOCA's existence. Our kids feel the love and thrive in such an environment, you should be more than proud.

[05/04/20]   To all the TOCA NC teachers: “I miss you and love you! I hope that you are feeling well and are staying safe! You’re the best teachers ever!!” –

[05/04/20]   Teacher SHOUT OUTS from our lovely families! #TeacherAppreciationWeek

Ms. Kim 🐝

She is so amazing! Always there early in the morning to greet all of us. Mornings can be tough. Some days she is met with an easy send off, and some days she has to step in to help calm a crying child, or give a stressed parent a pep talk. She is so caring and comforting. She genuinely loves all of our little ones and it shows!

Ms. Jessi 🐦

She is so fun & easy going! Teaching 2 and 3 year olds is understandably challenging from time to time, but Ms.Jessi does it with ease and humor and positivity!

Ms. Jenn 🦔

She is a great listener and very creative. She isnt afraid to suggest and try new things, based on your child's specific needs. Her lesson plans and projects are very engaging and sensory oriented. Our son still talks about using "cotton ball words" or soft, kind words vs. "sandpaper words" or rough, unkind words.

Ms. Imelda A. Berry 🐇

She always has a smile on her face! She loves our babies, as her own. She is kind and caring and such a blessing to us and our babies.

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!

Our parents and students worked super hard this weekend creating special 'THANK YOU' signs for all of our teachers!

We may have to celebrate from a distance, but we are still going to work hard to make all of our teachers feel the LOVE this week. This is just the beginning!
