The Pre-Preschool Post

Today Fiona went to her preschool for the first time as it was "moving in day". It went pretty well--she wanted to stay and paint, but she seems a little sad at being left. She seems to really like the main teacher and I am very thankful for that!

Tomorrow is the first day and she will only go for one hour with 4 other kids (as opposed to ... eleven?). Next week she will go for 1 1/2 hours and will overlap with some of the other kids. The third week is the regular three hours and all kids....woo hoo!

Today was only 10 minutes so I did just fine :) Tomorrow I really do walk away. I don't go home though (home is 20 minutes away), so I guess I will take Sophia to the library....

What a lovely way to transition in! Most places are not so gradual. I'm so glad it went well! I'm sure tomorrow will, too!

Oh I wish I could see her! How fantastic. She's going to have lots of fun once she gets there and gets into it.

This gentle time schedule is lovely. It's nice for those who stay and for those who leave...

Yes, I love the gentle time schedule. But she keeps telling me school is too short :) How fortunate I feel, I have to tell you!
