Oyewole Folarin loves writing greeting card messages and helping others find the words they need for life's special moments.

Are you feeling the strong desire to write a heartfelt thank you note or letter to teachers at your child’s preschool or kindergarten? Don’t wait until the end of the year or on Thanksgiving day to show your sincere gratitude to them for their care, hard work, dedication, and passion for early childhood education.

A simple thank you note to a preschool teacher from parents will suffice and better than giving money to them. It’s one of the most important ways in which we let them know we value what they have done for us and to motivate them to do more.

These thank you notes and appreciation messages below will inspire you to write your own personalized card or letter.

I wanted to write to sincerely thank you for taking good care of my child. I cannot thank you enough for your hard work, patience, and for giving [him/her] everything needed to have fun while learning.

Thank you for giving [her/him] a sense of belonging in the classroom, and for encouraging [her/him] to be an independent individual. [She/he’s] no more relying on me to dress up for school.

      As a former kindergarten teacher, I thank you so much for writing this article, Oyewole. I love the sentiments expressed in your samples. I would be thrilled to receive these messages because they'd let me know that all my efforts were being seen and appreciated. Teaching can be such a thankless job — so exhausting and frustrating at times. A note like these would really mean so much to a teacher — more than any mug or plate of cookies. Great job!

      I appreciate your article and want to say that you need to continue your writing .Don't think of mistakes but try to finish them because committing mistake is not mistake but giving up from your effort is the mistake.
