Starting kindergarten + a midyear move - Page 2

post #21 of 23
It's not 20 minutes. It's one hour round trip, according to the OP. My DD just started at a charter school about 25 minutes from our house. It's only been three days, and I can't wait to get a carpool in place. Driving in circles for two hours a day, is driving me crazy.

I would enroll in the local schools and start your life. Home may not be ready in January. Moving will take awhile. Enroll in the school that makes sense now and revaluate later.

 

I think the worst option would be in to drive two hours a day the first year of K. THat sounds miserable.

I imagine school is about underway, and the decision is made, but I just want to agree that the 1 hr round trip commute thing is pretty miserable.  My girl started preschool last year at the world's most lovely montessori school.  At the time, about 15 minutes from home, and where we lived *all* the schools were 15 minutes from home.  Midway through the fall we sold our house and moved 10-15 minutes away (was not in the cards when we were making the preschool choice a year earlier), effectively doubling our school commute.  I also have a now 2 year old.  It was really a tough commute, and I felt terrible that he was in the car all the time.  We are letting her finish her second year there, before starting kindergarten in our community school (the original plan was 3-6 at the montessori school), because she is a very slow to warm kid, and I didn't want to add one more transition to her life, but I am *already* looking forward to next year and the year hasn't even started yet.  If I had to do it over, I would definitely have biased toward proximity, but life is unpredictable, we make do!
