We just had our first unscheduled conference. Our son is attending Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. He's been attending for almost 2 years.
My son is the most advanced in his class of 30 toddlers. He knows his letters, numbers, colors etc better than all the other children according to his teacher. She said he is 'brilliant'.
However, he seems to want to do his own thing when it comes to activities. When they are supposed to move on to the next, he throws a fit and won't move on until he's ready.
He also won't really nap and likes to do a lot of the activities by himself. They said he likes to take a toy and go off to a quiet area alone. He doesn't really 'play' with the other kids. There are over 30 kids M-T but fewer on Friday. He apparently does better on Friday with fewer kids. He often goes and sits on the stool in the bathroom because they have pictures of fish he likes and it's quiet.
Also doesn't like to eat when everyone else eats. Rarely even eats his lunch.
I wonder if he's just around adults more and 30 kids is too many for him to handle?
Maybe this is just a phase? He has been throwing more tantrums lately at home. The comments on his cards they send home with him every day say, "Trouble following directions" almost every day.
My feelings are that he's bored and needs to move to the next class but he can't since he's not potty trained yet.
I'm not sure what to do, give it some more time or take him to a more traditional daycare.
