I know I have a couple more years to worry about it, but I was just thinking about it and was curious. Do you have to register your child to attend the school in your neighborhood, or if there are extenuating circumstances, can you register at a different school?
I was just thinking, there is an elementary school that is literally a minute away from my job by car (5 minutes walking). His daycare is a 5 minute drive (less if the light is green). To pick him up after school and then drop him off at his daycare and return to work would take me 10 minutes tops. To pick him up from the school in our neighborhood, drop him off at daycare and return to work would take about 45-50 minutes.
I realize we could just have him bussed, but DH and I decided that we will not be putting him on the bus until he's older. We're not comfortable having other people drive him anywhere.

My son attends a private school and next year I will register him at his local public school. It is a public Montessori and you have a deadline to apply by for the following school year. Space is limited and no spot is guaranteed. There is an additional charge that regular classes do not have. Our friends pay five hundred a month for their son to attend. I took a tour of our local school when my son was one. Talk about starting early. Before he was here I already picked out my options I narrowed it down to. So in the middle of this school year I will tour the schools I like again, apply, and pick based on the ones I like the best who accept us. We have school choice in our county and so I look at both public and private programs.
