Oh that bitter-sweet moment of Charlotte starting pre-school – I wanted to cry and celebrate at the same time. I can’t believe she’s old enough to go to school and I can’t believe how much this very energetic 2 1/2-year-old girl needs school. Entertaining Charlotte all day every day is not for the meek or mild. We knew she was ready to be challenged in a new way anYd it would be great for her to spend a few hours a day away from home so we all could maintain our sanity, especially with the arrival of her baby brother.
The first day was such a success. I was so relieved to see her run into school with excitement and confidence. She waved bye to me at the door and hasn’t looked back since. It’s such a joy to pick her up everyday and hear the tales of a toddler’s day at school. She has really blossomed in only a month. Her vocabulary and social skills are surprising me everyday. We couldn’t be happier with the Montessori method and the life skills she’s learning. Congratulations, Charlotte! We’re so proud of you!
