Tiger Woods Apologizes to Pre-School Parents

2/23/2010 1:17 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren have issued a letter of apology to the parents at the Florida school where their 2-year-old daughter, Sam, attends day care classes.

Tiger Woods and wife Elin Nordegren

In the letter, obtained by WFTV9.com, Woods blames the paparazzi for creating an "inconvenience" around the Premier Academy in Windermere over the past few months.

Here is the letter in its entirety:

Dear Premier Academy parents,

We would like to share our appreciation for your support over the past several months and offer our personal apology for any inconvenience you are experiencing due to the increased media scrutiny surrounding our children. We truly understand how frustrating it can be.

We hope that the paparazzi will find something better to do with their time in the near future. In the meantime, it is our goal to keep life as normal as possible for our children. We are sure that as parents you can appreciate that. For Sam, that normalcy means attending the school that she enjoys so much.

Again, we truly appreciate the support from the entire Premier Academy family.

Kind regards,

Elin and Tiger Woods

For all of you idiots who are bashing Elin for putting her daughter in "day care" this isn't one. It's a nursery school. There is a big difference. Yes, 2 year olds go to a nursery school. I'm sure the program isn't 5 days a week for 8 hours a day like a standard day care - for working parents. A nursery school, especially for a 2 year old is only a couple of days a week for 2 -3 hours at a time. That's the program for my kids, who started when they were 2. It's main goal is to start to socialize them with other children and not have them be so scared to leave their parents. They do little art projects and have story time. I think it's great that she enrolled her.

Tiger still doesn't get it. It was obvious at the microphone went he went off topic too much, it was obvious before that moment last week and his track record is too consistently arrogant and outside of caring about other people to think his arms-length apologies and sponsor/lawyer-scripted media stunts are any sign of an authentic shift in character, which is what most people think is required of him.

I can't believe some of the comments I'm reading here. The kids being with other kids is a good thing and it teaches them how to interact with others. It's an important thing of learning how to live in the world. I think that Elin and Tiger are trying hard to not raise another Paris Hilton for this world. I also think that the Paps that are following and hanging around the kids schools are WRONG! It's simply wrong WRONG WRONG! that the Paps are staking out the kids as the kids did NOTHING wrong. They are not Tiger and should not be followed.

This is like following the Gosselin kids because because Jon Gosselin is a male whore. It's WRONG!

Where Tiger sticks his little peepee is between him and his wife and the parents of the children where his daughter attends daycare. Now back off white people.

Tiger, we hope you find something better to do with your time. Seems like there are better things you could have done with your time in the last year or two.

I love it that you douche bags act as though Tiger owes you something. That man only needs to make up to Elin and his children, the rest of you are like nosy neighbors who are constantly looking out the windows and getting upset by what happens at your neighbors house as if it happened to you directly. Get a life you bunch of losers.

My granddaughter goes to school at 3 yrs old. Of course it is day care but they don't call it that now, it is called preschool and they are tought different social skills and shapes, etc before kindergarden. Lots of parents are pressing kids to be intellectual advance (not saying the woods are one of these parents).

Can't the school petition the courts to have the papps stay away from the school? This goes for any school where celeb's kids attend.

It's the white man's fault. I bet all the paparazzi are white like Tiger's wife and every single one of his mistresses.

Why the freak are the paps going to the kids school for? And why are people still talking about Tiger Woods? Who the freak cares! What he did was wrong, but that's between him and his wife, family or whatever. Last week he told everywhere what they wanted to hear, now lets move on. Nothing more to see.

If Socialized medicine is so great and wonderful, then why is the Canadian Premier opting for the U.S. healthcare system instead?

More liberal lies and propaganda being exposed as the frauds that they are. Liberalism continues to fail and it's beautiful

For all of you who are saying Tiger should just blame himself, you obviously didn't listen to his press conference. He took responsibility. I don't know how many more ways he could have said it. He also apologized. He just wants his kids left alone. I think the press should go after his former mistresses, they would line for attention.
