My DS will be 3 in April and will be starting school in August. It's a speech delay class as my son is very delayed in this one area and I have been told he has aprexia of speech. I know this preschool setting and extra speech therapy will do wonders for him... and I have a few months to prepare... and though I don't think anyone else can really see how I feel... I hate that he is going. It's 4 days a week, 4 hours a day. I just hate that he is growing up.... he will offically not be my baby anymore! *tear*
It's tough seeing them grow up, but I'm sure it'll be good for him. I'd love to put DD in preschool this fall, since she is a motivated learner, says she'd like to go to school when she sees it in books or on TV, and I'd love to have some one-on-one time with my baby that is due next month. I'm worried she'll miss the age cut-off by less than 3 weeks, since she has a mid-September birthday.
My son is going to be 3 in May. He goes to the preschool this month for his evaluation to see if he will qualify for next yr or not. I k ow he's just going to cry the whole time. Not sure how they will evaluate him while he's crying
My two oldest start kindergarten in August. So I know how you feel. My youngest will be 2 in April. It is deffinantly hard to see them grow up. But it will be good for him. And just know he will always be your baby! :)
I'm right there. My son turned 4 in January. I have been doing preschool homeschooling foe him. He is reserved around kids & people he doesn't know. So I've been told by 2 people already he needs to go, but I know he's going to be a basket case if or when he goes. I will cry right with him. Lol He's my only one. It's hard. Good luck mamas!
Agreed! My 4 yr old is super timid & shy outside our home so we enrolled her in full time preschool at 2 1/2. It has done wonders for her comfort level around others & she loves it! The first couple weeks were especially tough because she would cry when I dropped her off. After a quick hug, word of encouragement & good bye, it was amazing to hear her cry stop immediately when I walked out of the room. It's a tough adjustment but inevitable for all of us! I work with kids with special needs & intervention is SO critical, the earlier & more frequent the better. Good luck!
We are homeschooling this year. Next year if my son who is turning 4 next week will stop pooping his pants I am going to let him go to preschool and see how that works for him.
My oldest will probably never go back to a normal classroom and will probably stay home. She just turned 7 and would rather be incharge of her own learning and I can give her lots of control and she is motivated. She was a horror in a classroom.
My secound dd who just turned 6 has tried homeschool and preschool and wants to go back. So we are going to try regular school next year for her.
My son will probably be great in a class but he has to decide he wants too. I may put him in anyway and see if that helps him start pooping in the potty.
My baby is turning 3 in April so she will still be home next year but will probably try preschool also the next year.
I like to see where they are going to be the most comfortable and happy place for them to learn at thier best. I am dreading next year though because two of mine will probably attend school and I dont like them being away from me, but it is for thier best so I will do it and make them think I am excited and happy for them.
