Good news

Things are moving forward for Mstr A - which is good because the school seems to have gotten bored ofd oing most of the things requested - such as tapping him on the shoulder to get his attention, or giving him time reminders that his work needs to done. Their current policy seems to be: if he doesn't listen, send him to another class so that you don't have to watch him not do any work!

Anyway, he has his referral to the peadiatrican on friday morning, we have a meeting with the other school's head on the 18th and they are increasing their numbers by two per year next year, and mstr A is the first applicant for year 2, so hoefully a place is available.

The pre-school i went to visit today for LMB to start in sept was just awful, so I'm hunting again, but new school has a pre-school attached, so i think I'll try them next:-)

The observant of you will have noticed that I have a new tenant. Please go & check her out if you have a moment. I will do a proper review tomorrow I hope.

    Keeping my fingers crossed for Mstr.A.

    Out of curiosity: what was wrong with the preschool that made it "just awful"? (I believe you that it was, I'm just curious.)

    Well, apart from the fact that in the 2 1/2 hour session there were three seperate times set aside for prayerts, as well as a bible story each day.....

    which I just feel is a bit unecessary at 3 years old

    The room was small, and there was no outside space. They are registered for 20 children, and have one qualified play leader, one "trained" assistant (aged approx 18) and " a couple of voluteers who have lots of experience with children and help out when they can". While I was there, the children were all playing happily, mostly with imaginative & educational toys, but there was no structured teaching at all (it is supposed to be a pre-school, not a play group) and one snack a day of squash & biscuits was included (even though I know for a fact that they can claim a pint of milk per child per day free from the gov't).

    I just felt LMB deserved something a bit more - more challenging, more interesting, more geared towards preparing her for school.
