My son started public pre-k this year because of his speech delays. We were obviously very happy that he has been accepted into this pre-k program and will be receiving speech therapy. When we arrived at his school it was a very nice facility and the teachers seem wonderful;however, we feel a little out of place. The entire school is hispanic students and my son is the only white student attending. He has blondish hair and blue eyes. We don't mind the high population of hispanics as a matter of fact, we love hispanic people! We are just feeling a little out of place. Some the other parents have shot me dirty looks and I just don't want my son to feel out of place. He said he had a good first day of school and seems okay with it all. I guess my question is...how "aware" are children of race at the age of four??
