My son goes to preschool 3 days a week. They offer a after preschool program called "lunch bunch" and for $7 you get to let them stay and eat lunch with their friends and they get to play on the playground. No big deal and not that i even planned on letting him be there all the time but i would like it if i have appts and etc. ...Well they are not allowed to go to lunch bunch until after the parent teacher confrence and they are only allowed to do it if the teacher feels they are ready. Well .... My son apparently is not ready because he is not very vocal. Now this child talks my ear off he just does not do alot of talking at school. He does not talk to strangers and he does sometimes aventaully warm up to people but not until he has known them for awhile. He is a very smart child, knows how to count, his ABC's (well most of them), can start and run any computer and get his games up and running etc. I think he is a very smart child at the least average for his age. I am very upset about this. I feel like my child is being left behind because he is shy. I dont know if that is the mom in me being over protective and should call and talk to the teacher more (i was in shock when she told me he would not be allowed to be part of this for at the least a month and then it will be reevaluated) or if i should let it be until then. I did not question it at the school because i was shocked and i think i would have cried had i started ... It has REALLY been bothering me. Tell me what is your take on this. Now my son did just turn 3 in July and is one of the youngest in his class. I do not know if the other child that is younger than him was able to go or not either. Anyway i guess this was just a vent. DH thinks we should have a meeting with the Director and the Teacher but i really dont know what i should do ...
