This week has been a busy one for us. Monday, I started the registration process for Anthony's Pre-K program. Today, we went to orientation. Friday, Anthony gets his school physical.
Open house/meet the teacher night is in 2 weeks and then he starts school the day after Labor Day.
I found out that this program is NOT a half day program like I had read on their website. I am really bummed that now I really won't ever get to see him because of my work schedule and his school schedule. :(
I also found out that they won't bus him to/from the day care he goes to on Mondays and Fridays because he would be the only one at that stop. So, now I have to look for another day care that they WILL bus him to/from for before/after school care. This means he will be going to 2 day cares along with the school. Jeez.
I'm really starting to doubt whether I am doing the right thing by putting him in Pre-K. I know that it would be the only way he gets real school-type learning because the day care he goes to on the weekends is nothing but free time. Outside, inside with toys and TV. Too much TV. I feel like that place is dumbing him down because they don't do anything there. But I am hardly going to see him once he starts school. :(
I just... wish things were different for us.
