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

Do you want to show your appreciation by writing 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 to show your sincere gratitude to them for their hard work, dedication, and passion for early childhood education.

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

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

      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!
