My DH and I have considered putting him in Pre-school for a few reasons. For one, to get a head start on learning, he has no interest right now. I try to go over the ABC's and 123's with him, but he loses interest quickly or just refuses. But, my main reason is to help him with "separation" from his dad (or any family member) during the day, something he will have to deal with in Kindergarten. Jake is very, very shy (unlike my other two children). When he attended Day Care before he would cry 90% of the times I dropped him off. He would only be content with one teacher, but she left a month after he started. So, everytime I dropped him off it was torture on me.
I would love to have some of your opinions! Part of me thinks when he starts Kindergarten he can comprehend the fact that we won't be separated for long, or will he.
You would think after two other children this wouldn't be an issue, but the other two were so different. My first DS loved Pre-school and never cried, and my DD cried a little but, loved being with the friends she made at school (she's a "social butterfly"). Now, there's Jake. So, so different.
