Excuse me while I panic! I know she's going to love it but still. Freak out. Cry only when she isn't looking. She'll do it 3 days a week for 3 1/2 hours a day and she's going to have extra classes for Yoga and Music and we're going to switch to the day where they do art as soon as we can.

((hugs))

I don't know how parents do it, though I guess I'll find out in a few years. One of my nanny charges is starting school tomorrow (at age 4...England is so weird). We've had a couple of days of "lasts"....last day playing with Baby K (the other nanny charge)....last day eating lunch with Jen, etc. Dad isn't able to do the drop off tomorrow morning, so I'm going to go with mom and then we'll go have a cup of tea and burst into tears. :) Oi.

app..your daughter's preschool sounds awesome, btw!

i just got the class lists and schedule for BabyPunk's little preschool!
*sobs*
im not freaking out because i will be accompanying her due to her fear of other humans, especially the child kind but it still seems like "MY BABY IS GOING TO SCHOOL!"

im so excited to see that in her class there is only 5 kids including her and one of them doesnt start til the end of September so it will be four kids when she starts. two of them are from the playgroup we did there last spring.
they do a lot of "meet n greet" activities before school even starts so im really happy with how much hand holding there is to make sure the shy kids are ok. so happy with my choice.

i do see the first fundraiser of the year they have is a pizza sale and they need volunteers. ugh can the vegan opt out of selling pizza? :-(

looking at the schedule i see she gets all the Jewish holidays off which is new and different for me having grown up in an area that was like 99% Catholic. i better remember to mark my calendar otherwise i will totally show up to school with her on those days.

they havent asked us for any more money for tuition after our $250 deposit so im not sure what's going on with that. i imagine any day now they will be hitting me up for money

yes! i agree i think it's a perfect fit. even though i read the class thing wrong and she has 12 kids in her class not 5 i still think it will be such a great fit for her.

i had to take a highlighter to the schedule though because i was so baffled by all of it. they have 2, 3, and 4 day a week classes and the 2 day a week class is for kids like BP who havent been to school yet so after literally studying the damn schedule i figured out that the 2 day a week kids are super slowly eased into a full "day" (it's 2.5 hours in the "day")

the first few days is like an hour and a half and they are split into two smaller groups for the first day (hence my thinking there were 5 kids in her class) then they eventually go to 2 hours then finally 2.5 hours.

i havent done anything school related since college so this is all baffling to me! i feel so lost with this school stuff!

Wow!

That sounds great, LP! Fundraisers are always the worst, especially the non-vegan ones. I have a friend near DC and her kid's school does a fundraiser from a local farm?! It's so cool. Some non-vegan stuff, but some vegan stuff, and all local! Curious about implementing in new school.

Okay. So pre-k was great, k was great, 1st was great. 2nd sucked asparagus and 3rd got better but 2nd grade lingered as a terrible memory. 4th grade looms.

i had to get a copy of BP's immunization record for preschool today and looking at it she never got "meningococcal"
we did not refuse any vax except hep A because i was told it was mainly for kids going to daycare in high risk areas so im unsure why she doesnt have this one.

isnt that for meningitis? is it bundled into other shot?

im confused

I think they don't typically give the meningococcal vaccine until they are preteen/teen age unless there are other risk factors. There's still a spot for it on most immunization forms because they use the same type of form for all ages of students.

oh that makes sense then!

i thought meningitis was something that was a risk to infants so i was just making assumptions.

thanks for the explanation!
