My best friend asked me this question today and I didn't know what advice to give so I told her I would ask here. Her twin boys are 5 and enrolled in a Catholic school kindergarten for a variety of reasosn (needed full day due to daycare costs, limited options for additional childcare due to no family in the area). She also wanted to keep them out of their public school system for now as they are twins with an August birthday who she may re-enroll in kindergarten at their home school next year. Today she found out they are up to 30 kids in the classroom with 1 teacher and no aide. Her question is, how does she approach the school with her concerns when she doesn't have another option in terms of placement. She wants to ensure her children are getting the best education possible and she just doesn't see how this is possible with 30 kids in a room. What she is hoping to get from all of you is advice on how to start the conversation with the teacher and principal and some ideas of what others might do in her situation.
