Since it was time to register the children for the following school year, I became even more confused and emotional about what would be best for him. How could I send him back to preschool without truly knowing what he understood, where he fell in the classroom lineup, or where he would be with his speech therapy. It just didn't feel right. While brainstorming ideas, a thought came to me: What if he repeated the 3-year-old class? It may sound odd to hold a toddler back in preschool. But for my son, it was a pivotal choice.
Develop a goodbye routine, and practice it in advance. Provide a concrete time frame for your departure. Preschoolers haven’t grasped the concept of time yet, so saying you’ll stay for one puzzle is more meaningful than saying you’ll stay for five minutes. Your routine may include a secret handshake, a set number of hugs and kisses, or a story once arriving at school. Whatever you decide to do, be consistent.
The KinderCare center itself was absolutely gorgeous. Ramps from floor to floor made it accessible for all. Each classroom was bright and cheerful, with large windows overlooking the Seaport district. Inspirational quotes and Boston-themed accessories and decorations adorned the walls, making this Boston-loving girl feel right at home! Each classroom held a myriad of educational toys that encouraged creative play, neatly organized into centers.
No more diapers. Or pull-ups. Or swim diapers. Or anything other than underwear! My kids are about 1.5 years apart, so it feels like we've been living with diapers for eternity. But once they're gone, the feeling is awesome. (Both for your kid's accomplishment and the family budget.)
I began to consider redshirting my son — having him enter kindergarten a year after he was “allowed.” But he was so ready to go that I sent him.
