Lil’ Norsemen preschool program excellent option

To the Editor:

We are lucky in Leelanau County to have many quality options for preschool for our young children. Your March 14th edition highlighted many programs, however the stellar Suttons Bay Lil’ Norsemen Preschool Programs were left out and deserve mentioning. The teachers are dedicated to quality education, play-based learning, and a genuine love for children.

Our daughter attends the program with teachers Natalie Fritz and Katherine Kwiatkowski, and assistant Tamie Bancroft — and they all have proven to be eager learners as well as teachers. You see, our daughter Carmella happens to have Down syndrome. Although Mrs. Fritz had never had a child with Down syndrome in her classroom, she showed no reservations about accepting Carmella and, in fact, her welcome was palpable when we visited last spring and that welcome has turned into an outstanding experience ever since enrolling last fall.

The Suttons Bay Lil’ Norsemen Preschool Programs are an excellent option for your child in your home county. Won’t you give them a try?
