“When I rang the doorbell, Ms. Sharon [Wheaden- West, LELC’s executive assistant] let me in and was so warm and welcoming,” Cierra said. “She explained that this is a preschool and told me a bit about the program.” Cierra said that she left wondering if Kamille might be able to attend LELC next year, since the 2020-21 school year had already started.
Kamille is happy and adjusting well online learning since March. Due to a critical preexisting health condition, he had been unable to continue work at Whole Foods during Maryland’s “stay at home” Covid closure.
Cierra recently started a new job as a leasing consultant. She is relieved to have found a school within walking distance of home where Kamille is in a small classroom with a warm and nurturing environment, surrounded by children her own age.
“It’s all good, but she is still not used to being on a schedule due to being home with us during the shutdown,” Cierra said after Kamille’s first week. “She is adjusting!”
