Taking a bus to Kindergarden???

The school near our house will be being renovated next year and they plan to bus the kids to a nearby elementary school. It seems crazy to let my son start kindergarden and take a bus, he just seems so young for that and we moved to this area to be close to this school. Am I being silly for being concerned about a kindergardener taking a bus to school?

  • I know of alot of children that aged that are riding the bus to school.
    My son rode the bus to a field trip and I was worried about him... I didn't like it to much.
    I'm glad I get to take my child to and from school .

  • How far will he ride, how long will he be on the bus, and what ages will be on the bus with him?

  • My middle rode the bus to school at age 3, and my youngest is 4 and he rides the bus to/from 4K.

  • My oldest rode the bus last year for K and my autistic 5yo :) is riding the bus this year. Next year, my 4yo will start preK and will ride the bus with his big brothers. Nothing to fear. The driver looks after the little ones. My guys enjoy the ride. And it saves me from sitting in that hellishly long car-riders line every day!

  • I would drive him. I don't trust school buses especially with little ones.

  • Both of my school aged children ride the bus, and have since kindergarten. Guess that makes me a bad mum, huh?

  • It makes me nervous. I'm w/you.....seems a bit young to be taking a bus - just my opinion.
