That is why our boy is officially registered for preschool this Fall… he will do a few hours a morning for a few days a week to start to prepare him for a daily pre-k class the following year, and then he will begin kindergarten when he turns six.
I am just so relieved to have this decision made, and to have a plan in place for our boy’s education. He is a smart little guy, and I know he will do well, but his family age (the age he is emotionally) is around 12-18 months. He is learning things at his age level, but the way he needs us and his attachment levels are that of a much younger child. I am already nervous about how he will react to being left for a few hours a week. It will be a huge adjustment, for sure.
I know that this will be so good for him, though, just like it was for our little M, and I am excited to see how he does with this.
I also can’t believe it is time to make these decisions…how is our boy almost four years old?! Crazy!
