So my 4 y/o sons preschool apologized to me today. My son see's someone through DART for social development who visits him at preschool (private). I recently told her we would not be going back there. The parents were very unwelcoming to me, and the teacher always seemed very annoyed by my son crying and getting upset (he's very introverted). While I understand that can be an annoyance and disrupting to your class, the school left a very sour taste in our mouth.
We told the DART teacher we were finding a new preschool. She said she'd talk to her about it. I got a call today and she apologized and said she'd hope to see us back next year and if there is anything she can do to make it up, let her know. The teacher went thru a divorce so anything that was inconvenient for her...she seemed very annoyed. He'll have a new set of teachers as he'll be in the 4 y/o/PREK room this year but still. What would you do?

A 3 year old is too young for pre-school. Kids aren't developmentally ready for group experiences at that age. It's worse for an introvert. Most kids really are'nt ready for group learning experiences until they are 7. Many states don't require school until age 7.
If you are sending your son to pre-school to learn, he would be better off at home with you. Some people call day care pre-school. If you need day care the best choice is to have someone come to your home with or without her child/children. The second best choice is a woman that cares for him in her home and he is the only child she cares for for pay.
I would not send a boy younger than 6 to any kind of school.
