Why do we do what we do?

Why do we do what we do?

I have been the preschool, afterschool, and summer camp director at ICS for 17 years.   I have learned so much in the years I’ve worked with kids and have so much more to learn. 

Many times people have asked why we have a particular way of doing things at school and for me the answer is multi-faceted. In preschool, having all of the students doing things at the same time involves a process such as our naptime.  In afterschool care we have a certain routine as well, so the kids know what to expect daily, the staff know what to do and the parents know where to find their kids in the afternoon during pickup!  In summer camp,  there are many moving parts and it helps to know where everyone is and what kids are present. We practice fire drills once a month so the kids know what is expected, we have lockdown drills to get them to the closet safe location quickly, we have dismissal time, lunch schedules and so many other things during the day. This comes down to one word, routine.

The larger picture of why we do what we do is because we are called. God placed a calling on my life to work with children over 30 years ago and I have never lost my vision to provide quality care, love, consistency, and sometimes wise counsel to staff, parents and kids. I wake up ready for each new day, and sometimes those days bring many challenges!  But the Lord knows these kids make me laugh, cry, pray, question, and sometimes change my opinion.  One of my favorite quotes is from James Lehman

“Your children watch you for a living.  It’s their job, it’s what they do

That's why it is so important to try your best to be a good role model.

Know we are here to partner with you, to guide you, to love you, support you and learn from you as we help in raising your children, teaching them both academically and spiritually.
