First Day of Pre-School
Today was Baby Bug’s first day of pre-school . . . and of course this morning there was a major accident on the freeway causing them to close all but one lane. I had to leave at 6:30 am just to get her to school by 8am. With all the rushing around, I was afraid that she wouldn’t take too well to the new environment but she did really well. In fact, while I was showing her around her new class, she kept saying, “You go home now, Mommy.”
My only concern is that they put her in the 4 year old class because she was born late in her year. I had specifically informed them that I was holding her back a year and wanted her placed in the 3 year old class. I feel she’s a little behind most kids her age in that she isn’t potty trained, doesn’t know all her alphabets & basic numbers, and still has difficulty communicating.
Now all the 3 year old slots are filled and I’m afraid that she’ll have a hard time keeping up with the rest of the kids. However, at this point there really isn’t anything they can do except let me know if a slot opens up. Oh well . . .
Anyway, she had a great first day. I just hope tomorrow goes just as well. Wish us luck!
For those with children born late in the year, when did you start their schooling?
