I had heard about the amazing summer programing that Ms. Lederer was offering ,including her book clubs and her daily camp. I was eager to sign my child up. Shane however is very shy, and gets anxious about new environments, so I wasn’t sure how this would go. Ms. Lederer spent over 20 minutes with me on the phone hearing about my concerns and discussing how we could approach this. She asked me questions to really get to know Shane as well. From this phone call alone, Ms. Lederer’s passion for what she does and nurturing heart were very clear. I knew Shane was going to be in great hands! On the first day, she greeted Shane with a warm and big smile and got him engaged in conversation right away about what his favorite sport was, what he liked, etc. and even laughing too! She then held his hand and led him over to his group. Shane didn’t even look back and from the distance I could see his big smile glowing across the room! This was a first for Shane, and it truly made me a proud Mommy! It is very evident that Ms. Lederer has a true natural talent for working with kids, and I am so grateful that Shane got to be exposed to her teaching!
