Did your kids go to a pre-school before they started kindergarten?
I'm really torn. On the one hand, he loves his babysitter. (I have had him in a private residence since he was 8 weeks old.) But on the other hand, does he need to learn "School behaviors" before he starts kindergarten? Things like raising his hand, or standing in line etc. I'm sure he can pick them up, but I'm afraid that the learning curve for these types of things, combined with his natural energy, will frusterate a teacher, and thus sour him on school.
He knows his letters, recognizes them both capital and lower case (for the most part). He recognizes his number through 10, and can add objects and dots etc up through ten, and write those numbers.
He wont start school until fall '14. Ideally I would like a 3 day preschool, to sort of transition him, but all of the pre-K classes around here are 5 days a week.
Also, do they still do naps in pre-k? This kid REALLY still needs a nap.
Did your kids go to pre-school / pre-k? Was it helpful? Necessary? Give me some advice, please!!
