We have decided to put EK in preschool next year. I don’t want to send her away too much; she still is so young, but I feel she needs some outside stimulation. I’ve been talking with friends and doing a little research online. Ideally, EK would go to preschool on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. I have one preschool I REALLY want her to get in. We went to the Open House today, which even more cemented my desire for her to get in there. The registration process is a lottery system, so now all I can do is pray and wait. What I liked so much about this preschool is the fact it has a faith based curriculum. The preschool is attached to a church, so it would make sense they incorporate Christian principles, but I now know that can’t be assumed for other school/church affiliations. EK and I went to another Open House last Friday. This was again a preschool connected to a church. I assumed since the school was with the church that there would be some Christian concepts taught. I had previously checked the website, but the info on there was from 2007. I asked our tour guide about a faith based curriculum, and she explained they did not use one. Now, please do not infer that I am suggesting this preschool is substandard. It is just not for us, and once again, I learned it is best not to assume. Back to the preschool we visited today…Other things I liked are its relatively close proximity to our house, a new, clean facility with large classrooms, low teacher to student ratio with all the teachers having degrees and some graduate degrees, a nice playground area and a gym if the weather does not allow to go outside, and an open chapel day on Wednesdays so EK can go even if she is in the T/Th class. I’ll let you know what happens.
