Yes, my 4 year old girl, turning 5 before the cut off is starting. She's been in 2 years of preschool and is totally ready. She can't wait. Me on the other hand, I'm a basket case. I'm nervous about all the outside influences and just the state of the public schools but homeschooling isn't an option since I work and she really loves being in a school environment.
We have one of the highest rated school districts and half of our schools are Title 1 schools. I thought I remembered reading that 40% of the schools in the country are also.

The principal at ours is also very involved and our school has a ton of parent involvement.

Every other day in the winter and usually every day in the summer.
That is typical for most daycare facilities due to state law. Our daycare required a special sticker be put on all the breastmilk bottles and they also had to be dated and labeled with the child name. Each bfing mom had their own colored sticker.
I nursed on only one side at a time and pumped the other. I WOHM and this has allowed me to never give either of my children formula b/c of the freezer stash I built up each time.
I wish I lived closer. I'd take my very big 15 month old there and see how they like it. What's worse is the ignorant comments to that article in the Free Press. Really is shocking in this day and age that a woman gets thrown out of a store for providing nourishment for her baby.
