peanutbutter♥ and I have already talked about our plans of sending Ykaie to nursery school this year.
Experts say that the ideal age for nursery school is three and she will be three and a half come June. I know that every child is different. But with Ykaie, I feel that she is more than ready to take on the challenges of nursery. She is a dynamic kid and I can see her display independence and passion for different kinds of things.
With this in mind, we want to choose the best school for her. Not a school with high tuition fees but a good one. One that would build her intellectually, socially and physically. It is very difficult to choose as I am torn between three schools, one of them, my alma mater ~ La Consolacion College- Caloocan. It was nice that peanutbutter♥ lets me decide which school to send ykaie to.
Many parents thinks that it is too early for a three year old child to go to school. Some think that the child might get tired of school easily. Some think that nursery isn’t even necessary. I myself didn’t go to nursery and went straight ahead to kinder 2. Hey, I turned out okay, didn’t I?
Well, we have to keep in mind that a lot has changed in society since I was in kindergarten and it is still changing. Since Ykaie doesn’t have any siblings yet, her opportunity for interaction and socialization is very limited. I always advise her to stay indoors and play with her older cousin, Ate Chellie. Specially, when I heard about the kidnappers who kills children and takes away some of their vital organs. That scared me a lot!
I told her about it and she is already very excited to go to school♥. She knows daddy will be here to take her to school on her first day.
I’m still trying to decide which school, though. There are some things I’m taking into consideration about my choice: the tuition fee, the distance of the school to our home and the quality of the education that Ykaie is going to get.
Joaqui was 3-1/2 years old when we enrolled him last school year for Nursery. Major decision making talaga ang pagpili ng school, and what we did with Joaqui was we brought him to 3 different schools that we like and we toured him around, and let him have trial classes and then we asked him which school he liked the best.
That’s a great idea, Jeng! Thanks a lot♥!
Listen to your motherly instinct, Peach. As a teacher, I have had students that went to school early and they held their kids back in kindergarten since the kid couldn’t keep up with their peers. Pero marami din naman na ok ang mga kids nila and adapted to the class well.
Kian and Andi went to school at 3.. Finding the right school is the hardest! Kasi you want them to get the best education. I find the progressive preschool education the best, they’re learning while playing, diba easy? para they won’t feel bored. their first school is the most important because that will be their foundation, that’s where they’ll build their school habits. but we didn’t stay there for too long, ’cause i want Kian to go to Notre..
try to find a progressive school first rather than a traditional school..
the basic foundation in studies is very important, i agree with you that you should enroll Ykaie in the school you find best for her foundation years. definitely she will enjoy her schooling 🙂 you’ll be much busier when her schooling begins hihi
