We Went To The Goddard School Today!

Took a tour, got the paperwork, and IF everything goes according to plan... Kaylee will be starting there soon! She went in and met a group of other 2 year olds and was shy for a minute but then she started talking to everyone. She wanted to stay longer than a few minutes so it left her wanting more and she can't wait to go back. I think once she realizes I'm leaving, she'll cry, but we're being optimistic and hoping that won't last long. I know I'll probably cry! I'm not sure who will have a harder time making it through the 4 hours apart, her or me. But I really love everything about the school; I had a good feeling about it the entire time we were there. The staff is friendly and all the kids seemed happy and engaged. I hope everything works out because it would be such a great opportunity for Kaylee to socialize and learn. She's a social butterfly and deserves to get to play with other kids regularly. The learning program seems great, it's not too pushy but they teach them a lot. I'm so excited, but still worried. I'm not sure if we're going to be able to work the schedule, transportation, and finances out. So I'm trying not to get TOO excited yet! It might be premature but if anyone has any tips for starting daycare/school, I'd love to hear them!

Stopping by from the blog hop and noticed I was already following thru GFC and Twitter but not Facebook. So today I followed on that. It may be that my FB was disabled when I blog hopped last weekend but everything is fine with FB now and I would love a follow back unless you have already done that. Could you please leave me a comment letting me know if you did so I can cross your name off of my list of people I need to catch up with on Facebook. Thanks so much for your help and have a great weekend.

I was really worried about leaving my son and he did cry. But after some time he became used to pre-school and looked forward to it. It will be good for her, and you'll suffer throng it more than her, I promise. Love your blog, going to see if I can follow you on Twitter ;)

Don't take it as given that she will cry, if you do then she more than likely will. Also don't focus on being upset yourself, focus on how much simpler going to the shops or to the library will be on your own and enjoy the feeling of being alone. If you are tense Kaylee will be.

When my daughter was about 18 month I started studying part time so she started daycare for 2 1/2 days a week. I was so excited about getting back to studying that it never occurred to me that she might have issues. But then she never did, she never cried and most times she would forget to say good bye because she was already playing or hugging her teacher.

My psychology lecturers son went to the same daycare and together we came to understand that it most likely my lack of anxiety that helped my daughter to feel safe and comfortable in daycare.
