This thread is just what I needed. We have an info session with all of the Moms, kids, and teachers on Friday for Preschool.
If anybody can think of anything that you'd ask differently re: Preschool vs. Kindergarten, please let me know
One thing that I wonder about are meals. Do the preschool students eat with all of the other elementary school students?? Who helps them make their food choices or is no guidance given? (It's a public preschool.)
Oh... also this is NYC (Universal PreK), and when I met with them a few months ago, they said that they were sure my son would get a place because they need native English speaking students at this level. So most of my sons classmates will probably not speak English--but will speak Chinese, Russian, Ukranian, Spanish, and Arabic. Does this bring up any additional concerns that you would ask about?? He doesn't have any language issues...i's very verbal... speaks in complete sentences and goes on and on... knows his ABCs, numbers, etc... but I'm wondering if there are any things I should watch out for? (I'd think it's cool if he could learn a little bit of some languages from his classmates, but I think the goal of the school is for my son to influence them not vice-versa.)
