My palms get kinda sweaty at the thought of sending my baby to school… but alas, the time has come to get Ruby registered for preschool starting this fall.
The internet has been scoured, strangers have been talked to and area preschools have been toured in hopes of finding a good fit for us. It’s pretty amazing how many options we have… and how expensive preschool is, and how few preschools are actually accredited. I am new at this whole preschool thing, so I don’t have any idea what I’m talking about.
This morning we took a tour and within 5 minutes of being at this particular preschool, the teacher who was giving us the tour had asked Ruby all sorts of interesting questions I’ve never thought to ask. That alone confirmed that I need to let professional teachers do what they’ve studied for years to do instead of trying really hard to think of, research and create educational preschool type activities and projects to keep Ruby occupied at our house. Whew! It exhausted me just typing that last sentence!
I’m pretty sure there will be tears when I actually have to drop her off on her first day… my tears, not hers. She is ready.
