TSC Tuesday - Planning for Kindergarten

Kindergarten registration already!  What to do, what to do?

I am not ready for Kinder in a big school. I am not ready for R to be 5yrs. It's all about me....right???

Considering that we just secured PUF for Bup and where he's at emotionally in regards to school, let alone the need for assistance and therapies.....well, I'm just not convinced a regular kindergarten in the public system is the place to go. Plus the public school system would use his funding as they see fit, not necessarily as it's intended.

Thank goodness I had a brain wave!  And no it didn't hurt!

What about another year in pre-school, 4 1/2 days a week, able to utilize the therapists, SNA and home visits?
That's the ticket!
Even better was that I didn't have to plead my case with I'm 4 Kids and the pre-school. They were in complete agreement!

Does this mean that Bup will be enrolled in kindergarten when he's 6yrs? Nope. It means we bypass it all together as it's not mandatory here. Another year of close one-one instruction and therapies should do the trick and prepare R for a "big school" environment.
