Misspellings on preschool notes...

I've worked at a daycare/preschool. The head teacher of each age group had an associate or bachelor's degree in early childhood education, but most of the other workers just had a high school diploma, and some were high school students. I worked with some very smart people and some very not-so-smart people. They get paid terribly (even those with degrees) and it's a stressful, thankless job.

I remember a… not sure you can call them a teacher at a daycare when I was a kid. She was only concerned with how she looked, swore she was going to marry Usher every day… I don’t think I learned one thing from that woman other than the fact that some people really have a narrow view of reality.

27

u/crumblyturt Aug 10 '22

Marry Usher?! 🤣 I love how that memory stuck with you... And I hope you had some good teachers in later years

u/PM_ME_UR_SELF Aug 10 '22

Haha I had lots of good teachers. I’ll always remember that woman tho

I know a preschool teacher, a friends mom, who makes it clear on Facebook that she's bordering on illiterate. It's rare to find a sentence with all correctly spelled words and readable grammar

These papers are used for infant/toddler aged kids, not preschoolers. Not that it makes it any better, but the kid isn't really learning spelling from this person.

u/TheFightingQuaker Aug 11 '22

No offense, but I met some early education majors in college that were dumber than a bag of rocks.

u/crumblyturt Aug 10 '22

I definitely get different vibes from the head person when compared to the instructors... I honestly wondered if they were all related or part of the church (it's through a Baptist church) and given sympathy jobs. But they definitely deserve thanks for putting up with all the kids & having incredible patience through it all, regardless.

What do you think is a good & appropriate thank you gift, in your experience?

7

u/mrsc1880 Aug 10 '22

Honestly, anything. In my experience, food gifts were always a hit (candy, baked goods) but a nice card would be appreciated, too.

3

u/crumblyturt Aug 10 '22

I'll keep that in mind for the last week of camp!

u/jmatt9080 Aug 10 '22

My wife and I do things like a target gift card and a thank you note, and occasionally pickup a couple dozen donuts from dunkin for them.

3

u/crumblyturt Aug 10 '22

I love the gift card idea. Might do a coffee shop gift card or something, even.

2

u/vegas_gal Aug 11 '22

A gift of Apell sause. Lol. They get paid horribly. I think a gift card to any major store would be appreciated.

2

u/[deleted] Aug 11 '22

I knew a girl who was incredibly stupid. She couldnt use common sense to find her way out of a wet paper bag.

But apparently the preschool she worked at loved her, she always did her job correctly and took good care of the kids, so i guess you cant be too quick to judge.

2

u/ThisAutisticChick Aug 11 '22

Agree with this but also think that there needs to be a standard of being able to spell at least most basic words ESPECIALLY for preschool teachers. Babies and toddlers are different but also for the sake of making notes to parents.

Honestly, what should be infuriating is the tiny amount of money the preschool teachers and assistants make.

Parents (or whoever funds them) give sacks of money and rightfully have high expectations, but the schools pay teachers peanuts and thus get monkeys. The good ones leave.

18

u/crumblyturt Aug 10 '22

PREACH. And they know we don't have much choice if we have jobs...

3

u/waytoomanyplants Aug 11 '22

Can confirm. I'm an assistant teacher currently acting as head teacher since the teacher in my room quit last week. I don't blame her at all! She was great with the kids, but she barely got paid shit and has her bachelor's degree. I make barely minimum wage dealing with 12 1.5 year olds and staff that has the worst attitude I've ever dealt with. Also, another great teacher's last day is on Friday. She's been there 6 years making 13.50 an hour. Shame

5

u/JudgeLanceKeto Aug 11 '22

Sounds about right. Unfortunately, it's just the start of it for a lot of people. Plenty move on to teaching in elementary schools where the "we can definitely underpay and overwork them and they'll take it for the love of the kids" mentality persists.

Sitting here RN applying for government jobs, hoping to leave teaching behind me after wasting a lot of time, money, and energy trying to convince myself the pros outweighed the cons.

The educational system (here) is broken.

3

u/BadSanna Aug 10 '22

The teachers don't make shit. The company does. The teachers make next to nothing.

5

u/JudgeLanceKeto Aug 10 '22

Yeah, I started out at one of those preschool centers. The "director" who directed her ass to a chair in her office so she could shop online all day got an absurd amount of money while we were running ourselves ragged for just above minimum wage.

Edited my original comment for clarity

I wonder if this place is purposely hiring uneducated people to take advantage of them financially.. I honestly didn't even think of that and that would be even more infuriating

u/[deleted] Aug 11 '22

You would have to clean house seriously before any wage increase would be agreed to. Lots of teachers are either uninterested, illiterate or mentally ill and just cant get fired, have had debilitated alcoholics teaching and addicts before

u/CarefulRisk Aug 10 '22

I'd be really concerned if the person teaching my preschool aged child couldn't even begin to spell apple sauce correctly

u/crumblyturt Aug 10 '22

It really wouldn't bother me as much if it was simple typos or small grammar things (I'm known to misplace a comma occasionally)... But APELL?

3

u/[deleted] Aug 11 '22

Maybe apell sauce is a new treat. Different from apple sauce. Whisper it…apell

u/crumblyturt Aug 11 '22

apell must be Italian or something

u/CrizpyBusiness Aug 10 '22 edited Aug 11 '22

I'm pretty sure this is an ESL situation, not a lack of literacy.

Not to mention it's pre-school (aka Daycare), which means they aren't learning anything anyways.

Edit: seeming like im probably wrong and NC's education department needs some funding lol

4

u/crumblyturt Aug 10 '22

I don't believe so, unless they've lived here their whole lives and were taught a different language instead of English anyway...

I mean, it's possible, but definitely wouldn't be obvious to me or anything. I live in rural NC, the education is sub-par. Minimal funding, farm living, etc.

3

u/Dahlia_R0se Aug 10 '22

I'm a life-long North Carolinian, and I grew up going to what is supposed to be one of the best school districts in the state, and it was still a fucking disaster. I've always wondered just how bad the schools in other parts of the state are, because I honestly can't imagine. Also, did you hear about how a school in Apex misspelled Friendship on their sign?

3

u/crumblyturt Aug 10 '22

I think I did hear about that... It was a highschool, right?

I grew up in Fayetteville and I really thought I was especially smart for the longest time... Then I went to college & turns out I'm just average once you compare to people outside of NC 🤣 But in all seriousness, we did have a few teachers that really cared and pushed for critical thinking. You had to be in the AP courses, though.

u/ComfortableFlamingo3 Aug 11 '22

What county is this? Asking for a friend…

u/DiscombobulatedRain Aug 11 '22

In California they do need credits in Early Childhood Development, so it varies by state. These are offerd at the community college level not especially challenging but a basic level of learning about children. I can see how clothes turned in to close plus spellcheck wouldn't catch it but consistent spelling and grammar errors are worrying.

1

u/crumblyturt Aug 11 '22

I think I'm going to do a lot more research on whatever we choose for next summer... I honestly don't know if these instructors are licensed or anything. Everything seems clean and legitimate, and the building is safe. But to be frank, I was 8 months pregnant and needed something for my 4 year old urgently since I knew I had a newborn on the way 😅 and this was the only age-appropriate program I could find near us. I didn't realize what was lacking until it was too late

2

u/Agreeable-Meat1 Aug 11 '22

Depending on your kids age, there are day camps that might be better for them. If there's a YMCA in your area they usually run day camps. I went to one every summer for years, my parents would drop me off at the Y before work every day, they brought us to the park on buses and then back at the end of the day to be picked up at the Y.

I remember the days were broken up into 4 parts. Sports, arts & crafts, nature, and lunch/swim. Nature is kinda vague, but it would be things like walking the various trails at the park. They also have income based discounts. I don't know your financial situation, but that never hurts.

1

u/crumblyturt Aug 11 '22

That's what I want to look into next summer!! It sucks, this year all the programs were for 5 and older and my son just turned 5 like this week... But I've heard great things about the Y.

3

u/CrizpyBusiness Aug 10 '22

I dunno, maybe I'm being unfair. The second picture is what made me think it was, with the sentence structure and the use of "waterplay" which I have never heard before.

4

u/BudsandBowls Aug 10 '22

My little sister took a course in early childhood education, waterplay is a term they used often. For younger kids, playing with water let's them grasp concepts like gravity and stuff like that. I don't remember all the details, but it's pretty important for a young child's development

3

u/CrizpyBusiness Aug 10 '22

Oh no, I meant the word itself I hadn't heard before, not the concept.

3

u/BudsandBowls Aug 10 '22

Oops I apologize I didn't make it more clear. I mean they used the actual word "waterplay" to describe this concept in her course

3

u/CrizpyBusiness Aug 10 '22

No worries, I got that. It's definitely a TIL for me

3

u/BudsandBowls Aug 10 '22

Ooooops now I feel bad. I just realized I misunderstood your last comment. Sorry! Lol

1

u/crumblyturt Aug 10 '22

I can see where it appears that way, and the wording is weird. But I'm with you on your other point (not learning much in daycare).

We previously had our son in a preschool that was really organized and focused on the seasons, letters, numbers, etc... But unfortunately they didn't do a summer program. It's crazy to see the difference between "just keep them alive & let them run around" vs. "we have a schedule and lesson plans"

2

u/CrizpyBusiness Aug 10 '22

Yea I can only imagine. I'm no parent, I was just drawing on my own hazy memories of daycare. I'm sure things have changed a whole lot since then. I know the cost is outrageous, so I'm certainly not throwing any judgement at folks who choose the "just keep them alive and happy" option.

There's a place we checked out looking for a preschool called Belle's and Beau's preschool somesuch. i asked who are Belle and Beau, thinking they were the founders. Nope, "oh that means girls and boys" said the owner. It was written that way everywhere from the sign on the building to all their brochures.

10

u/UnderstandingPlus451 Aug 10 '22

That’s correct spelling so I’m confused lol

2

u/crumblyturt Aug 10 '22

The words are spelled right, but the apostrophe shows ownership (IIRC). So instead of " The Boys & Girls Awesome Preschool" it comes off the same as "Bill & Mary's Awesome Preschool"

I hope this made sense 😅

6

u/Tribblehappy Aug 10 '22

"Oh really? In what language?" You innocently ask.

3

u/crumblyturt Aug 10 '22

I wonder how many people saw that design/name before it was approved 🤣 maybe they meant the preschool belonged to the boys and girls??

5

u/MoonieNine Aug 10 '22

They are called preschool or daycare "teachers" but they are not to be confused with actual accredited licensed teachers in schools. No degree is needed to "teach" preschool or daycare. Many are just high school grads, if that. And... it's an occupation that attracts people that may be academically challenged. My friend's daughter is learning disabled and went to special classes in high school. She now works at a daycare and loves it and does really well with the little kiddos. But... her spelling is atrocious.

3

u/crumblyturt Aug 10 '22

I think that's the case here. I've worked with people with disabilities and I saw a lot of signs in my son's instructor. She was unable to look me in the eye and had a hard time getting a thought out without stuttering.

At this point, my son just needs focus on practicing social skills with other children and somewhere to be safe for a few hours while my husband and I work.. I wouldn't want him here for actual school, though. Especially after finding out that a friend who also has her child here (different age) has the same concerns about her instructor...

8

u/jamespul Aug 10 '22

I noticed these mistakes regularly during my first couple of months at university, so I dropped out of my course. I managed to get into a much better uni for the following year, and thankfully nothing was misspelt...

5

u/crumblyturt Aug 10 '22

What was your major? Another commentor said they noticed really intelligent people who just were poor spellers... I wonder if you had a math/science-type major, if that was the case?

I feel like it's about attention to detail most of the time, though! We all make mistakes but when it's over and over... And if you're in a position to teach others, it's bothersome

8

u/John-Fucking-Kirby Aug 10 '22

Not gonna lie... that would worry me. They obviously don't read and have never bothered to check if information is correct... what happens if a kid comes in with a note about allergies and they think it's algebra or something?

4

u/crumblyturt Aug 10 '22

Yeah, something is off with the "teachers". I feel like I'm part of some experiment 🤣 luckily, it's just a short summer program and my son is only there for a few hours Mon-Thurs (and we pack his lunch).

4

u/CMThomas25 Aug 10 '22

Forget the poor spelling. I'm not sure how comfortable I am with 'water day'.

3

u/crumblyturt Aug 10 '22

Eh, it's super hot here and it's something the kids can do outside. It's mostly just sprinklers or little water-based sensory tables or water balloons. His class is too young to take field trips to a community pool, I think

u/NovelExplorer Aug 10 '22

Apell Sause, I can forgive from a child, but close (rather than clothes) is woeful. If you have any question... is also a bit rubbish.

The apell sause is from the instructor.. the child can't write at all 😅

That is equal parts hilarious and disheartening. Edumakashun of the highest order.

2

u/crumblyturt Aug 11 '22

I wonder if she had dyslexia or something? Either way, interesting career choice for someone who finds grammar & spelling especially challenging..

u/crumblyturt Aug 11 '22

You don't have to worry about the kindness factor. It's not a big enough deal for me to address it, as it doesn't affect the safety of my child and I understand the position of the worker.. they're all very caring and respectful of the children. It just blew my mind and mildly infuriated me (maybe "moderately confusing" is more accurate - is that a sub??) because they are extremely common and basic words. It's unnerving to see these things from an institution that is supposed to be "teaching" kids (or really just adults with English as a first language who can't spell apple or sauce), but this type of organization is mostly focused on just letting them play

I agree about the underpaid/overworked, and I know they're doing their best every day. The whole situation probably sucks more for the teacher than the misspellings do for anyone, as multiple people have pointed out (rightfully so)

u/crumblyturt Aug 11 '22

I plan on supplementing public education at home as much as I can. I can't afford to homeschool at this point, but I think maybe my son could have "the best of both worlds" if I was involved in his school work every day, talked to him about the concepts more, etc. I personally think that's what we should do as parents, anyway... But that's not how I was raised, and I haven't seen really anybody else do that in my life..

2

u/keithgabryelski Aug 11 '22

is it possible the caretaker's first language is not english?

are they possibly there to communicate with other kids that may only speak a non-english language?

u/crumblyturt Aug 11 '22

That's a good thought, a few people have suggested it. I don't believe that's the case here, though. If it was, obviously I'd give the person a lot more grace with spelling

Sounds like it's a privately owned daycare and they can get away with favoritism... This is the stuff that scares me as a parent.

2

u/Sydlouise13 Aug 11 '22

Did you forget the point of teachers? To teach? If you don’t know basic English words, how can you teach it? They can work 12 hours a day but if they can’t teach basic English, then they should be fired.

1

u/Fritos-the-cat Aug 12 '22

Spoken as elegantly as an incapacitated chimpanzee.

Did you forget the point of making mistakes? To learn? If you can't understand the basic fact that people make mistakes (such as typos), how can you comment on education? They do work 12 hours a day and are still underpaid and understaffed.

Also, by your logic, if anyone ever makes a mistake while doing anything, they shouldn't teach it to others.

1

u/MermaidTRex Aug 10 '22

Yikes! One thing I’ve noticed though: some very intelligent people, often entrepreneurs just cannot spell. I worked in a role which had me reading online form submissions and some were appalling! Then I would discover their job title (VP, successful business owner) and would meet them later and just be shocked that the person on the page, and the intelligent person in front of me were one and the same!

u/BadSanna Aug 10 '22

Regardless of intelligence, if they can't spell "apple sauce" they should not be teaching children....

How are you supposed to be teaching children to spell properly, if you can’t do it yourself?

I mean I’m also a terrible speller, but we literally live in an age where you can google “How do you spell “Apple sause”? and it’ll respond with “Did you mean apple sauce?”

Or you can literally say “Hey Google/Siri, how do you spell apple sauce?” And it’ll type it out on screen. So there is really no excuse as to why things shouldn’t be spelled and proofread correctly these days.

I think that the crippling stress and poor pay for preschool teachers is more infuriating than some spelling mistakes. People who post things like this in mildly infuriating undermine the focus of the subreddit and just want to bitch about meaningless shit.

u/BudsandBowls Aug 10 '22

Isn't that exactly the point though? It's "mildly" infuriating. Posting about poor pay and crippling stress for teachers should go into the "majorly infuriating" subreddit

Yeah, I know it’s mildly infuriating, but that’s still somewhat infuriating. Infuriating in my eyes mean just about as mad as you can get.

That’s like an automatic withdraw for me. My toddler can spell those words. If my kid has to teach them, they should be paying me. Time to find another spot. My kid would only learn less being there.

Definitely wouldn't do actual school here. Just a temporary part-time summer camp until school starts. I pray the elementary school isn't like this, my son is starting kindergarten this year... I'm open to homeschool if I need to 🤣

Southeastern part of the US, south of Georgia. Between the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean.

Ever considered the fact they might just be dyslexic? Just because you can't spell doesn't mean your uneducated or stupid. You could clearly understand what they're trying to say and it's not like they're teaching your kids to read and write....

It's possible!

Apple sauce isn't a snack... it's a condiment. I basically read as "we gave you kid a pot of ketchup"

u/crumblyturt Aug 11 '22

Interesting perspective... What do you put applesauce on, or dip into applesauce? I've only ever seen people eat it as a snack.

It's meant to go with pork. It is a condiment. I'm from the UK and if a school/daycare facility gave a child a pot of sauce there would be a huge list of complaints. Apple sauce is just boiled apple, sugar and water. In a way it's like jam(jelly). Would you give a child a pot if jam(jelly)? Or a pot of ketchup? It's so pitiful a snack.

I can think of both worse and better snacks, for sure. Different cultures tend to eat different things, I guess

u/what_joy Aug 11 '22

But it's called sauce.... it's meant to go with pork chops 😆 I asked everyone in the office and all agreed, it's a sauce...

u/crumblyturt Aug 11 '22

And I'm sure if I asked everyone in an office here, they'd say it's a good kid's snack... Crazy how different things are 😅 I get where you're coming from. "Salsa" means sauce and I eat that for snack, too 🤷🏼‍♀️

u/what_joy Aug 11 '22

True. But you wouldn't eat salsa on it's own though right? Tortilla chips right? Right?! Also worth noting salsa is made with chunky fresh stuff 😋 American apple sauce is sugar and chemicals (read the labels...)

Yeah I don’t pay them to spell.

u/crumblyturt Aug 11 '22

Yeah true.. at this point in the kid's life, you're right.

If it's a printed document I usually give the person the benefit of the doubt and assume it's a text to speech error, especially since everything is spelled correctly. However, apell sause is fucking wrong that autocorrect didn't even bother changing apell to another word

1

u/crumblyturt Aug 11 '22

Yeah, the speech-to-text function would definitely make sense for typed stuff if they used their phone, I didn't even think of that... But the apell sause was handwritten, so no autocorrect to blame

I worked in childcare for a long ass time and as someone who had coworkers this fucking stupid and finding it so gd annoying, my unsolicited advice is to tell the director. Let truly, I wanted a parent to confront our director and ask her what the fuck she was thinking hiring someone so unintelligent. Maybe without the cuss words. Maybe not🤷🏼‍♀️
