Miss O started school again this week. I can't really comment on it just yet since it is only day 2, but O was less then pleased to be dropped off. I left her clinging to Miss Amanda. I have no doubt she will be fine - she is just P.O.'d that yesterday wasn't just a random event.
After drop off, I went and had coffee on Belmont with D's mom, Susie. As is usual when I have only had coffee and one 6 day old powdered donut for breakfast, my conversation was all over the place. But we did discuss the subject of Expectations, especially with the new preschool.
Now, to be clear, Sunnyside Sensory Preschool is focused on advancing social skills. That is what it is billed as, it is why the kids were selected to go there. But if you have looked at my previous posts, you know I am starting to worry that we are not doing enough (in EI, in private preschools, at home), to prepare these kids for Kindergarten. Susie shared this concern, as well as wanting to know more about what the students are doing in school, what they are learning and what they need to work on more.
Just got a call from Miss Amanda. The Drama Queen I dropped off is fine now, playing in the garden with the sad October tomatoes.
So your assignment today, all of our friends who are in Kindergarten now or in a new EI program, is what do you like/dislike about it? Does it meet your expectations? Does it disappoint?
