Katie Holmes is "so nice" to fellow parents at the school gates.
The actress is raising her six-year-old daughter Suri in New York City since announcing her divorce from Tom Cruise earlier this year.
Katie - who has primary custody of the little girl - is settling into city life well, with the star engaging with fellow parents at private school Avenues where Suri started three weeks ago.
"In school, Katie is so nice and talks to the parents like everyone else," a source told People. "She's making sure Suri is doing well and Suri has had a few playdates with new friends from school."
Aside from Suri's education, Katie has also been spending a lot of quality time with her daughter. They were spotted walking through Brooklyn's McCarren Park earlier this month.
"Katie seemed to be smiling and having a good time," an onlooker revealed.
The pair are also regular visitors to American Girl Place in Manhattan. A source at the store say Katie and Suri get excellent treatment when they turn up at the lifestyle venue.
"They do have reasons to come back. There are always new clothes, and a hair salon. If there is a frizz problem, they can fix it," an insider said.
