  • Check in your area to see if there are any Mommy groups. It's a good way to get children together and have play dates. It will surround her with other kids and give her the stimulation she is asking for. I was a little shy at first but hey, we were all there for the same reason!
    Good luck to you, take care. Robin

  • Pretty soon she'll be eligible for VPK, and that's FREE! :)

  • In my city, public preschool is free and available to everyone.

  • Check with your school district about a preschool program. Here it's UPK (universal pre-k). You should still apply for head start. They have so many openings for those above the income "cut off". (my oldest was in)

  • I have a almost 3 year old and a 4 year old and they both would love to go to preschool but we cannot afford it right now. So I got a book called

    The Complete Daily Curriculum for Early Childhood

    It keeps me on track and helping my kids be a the same level when they go school. you can get it at for less than $30
    as far as socalizing them make a few play dates or ballet something that doesn't take alot of money but get you both involved with people. Good luck best wishes
