A couple of weeks ago, Pete and I were discussing if we should let Emma start school (Playgroup) next year. We were not sure if she would be ready yet though, but if she did start school, I would at least have a few hours to spend alone with Hannah next year, since she would be homeschooled. It was a debatable topic because if she started, it would mean travelling to school every morning too.
Anyway, we decided to let Emma go for a trial parent-toddler class, just like Ethan and Hannah did at her age. Last Saturday I took her for the 9:00a.m. class. Woke her up at 8:30a.m. and got her dressed and cleaned up. However, our little missy fell asleep on the way there!
Good thing she woke up without a fuss when we arrived. She is very familiar with the school playground because I often take her there when I pick Hannah up from school.
Parent-toddler class is just an avenue for the child to explore various activities while interacting with the parent and hopefully thereafter, kids their age.
Emma certainly looked like she enjoyed her parent-toddler class session. When we came home, I sang the action songs she was introduced to during circle time and she could even remember the actions, and did them happily, despite only hearing them for the first time that morning!
We will be bringing her to another session tomorrow. I’m sure she’s looking forward to it! ♥
