Did you send your kids, if so when and would you again???
My youngest is 3 and he will miss the kindy cut off by 17 days. We maybe able if there are empty seats to get in but may not be at same school as Liam. Right now he goes to an in home day care. Its like going to grandma's but with friends. She has 5 kids currently they range from 6mnths to 3.5. Liam went there until he was just over 3 and we felt pressure from everyone around us (not the sitting) that he should be in a preschool type setting so we made the move. Looking back I wish I waited a year. Liam is creature of habbit and that became an issue with the adjustment from kindy to preschool and even kindy to 1st. Not that the adjustment wouldn't have been less from day care to preschool but with preschool he learned the ropes, he learned how to use his charm for his benefit and eventhough teacher turn over was high and he did move from preschool to pre-k while there. The difference in classroom structure was the same so then kindy was different but not too different from pre-k but 1st grade was a complete 180.
Now Jake is NOT Liam but at the same he would need to do awhole other year of preschool most likely. She isn't asking us to move him and to be honest she is a LOT cheaper then many of the options and her hours work with ours. I don't drive so we need a place that is open early enough DH can take him or close to home and or Liam's school. I also seeing how things are once in school I just want him to be in less structured place for as long as I can. If that makes sense?? Plus it seemed so much or kindy was just a repeat of what they did in preschool and that again I think work in someways against Liam because well he knew that stuff so school was easy and he didn't to work so much and then it caught up to him...
