Sorry ladies, but I need to vent!

So, I signed my oldest DD up for Preschool to start this coming September, we were highly recommended to one and after visiting it, gave a deposit and she was enrolled and accepted. YEAH! I have talked to them a couple of different times (she is my first, I am totally new to this, had lots of questions).  Well, today I get a letter from them, before I opened it I thought, okay, time to get things ready, but no, it was a letter stating that due to lack of enrollment, support and money that they will not be able to continue the preschool, and that they thought that telling us now gives us "plenty" of time to find another preschool! WHAT?? Its JUNE!!!!  Most of the preschools that are even decent are filled by March at the latest!  I am so stressed out, I was sooooo looking forward to her starting school-she needs that interaction and I need the break...dont get me wrong, I love my daughter more than anything, but she is just ready for preschool!! 

Okay sorry about that, just a bit shocked and dont know what to do just yet. Thanks for letting me vent!

Did they refund your enrollment fees?

Yes they did refund me my full deposit, it is just that she is now out of a preschool, and from what I hear from other moms I know in the area, most good ones are filled now.
