My DS now, 7 went to a Reggio preschool until he was five. We wanted to send him to a private school that wasn't Reggio but was close. Sadly, we could not afford it.
So off to public school he went... I won't lie the first year was hard on both of us. (I am an experienced Reggio schoolteacher) It was hard for me to understand so many of the public school rules. DS had chronic stomachaches and was bored out of his mind.
It has been better this year but I think this is because he has transitioned and because he is in a multi-age, "alternative" program, which is much more hands on. His teacher is also as sweet as pie.
I think if you can continue to afford it I would keep on the Reggio track or a school with a similar philosophy.
I have a 2nd DS and he is going to the same preschool, while I am not looking forward to his transition, I think the social, creative, and loving base they get from their reggio school are worth it.
I hope it works out for you. I wish the schools would get off their butts and realize that we need to teach in more then one way. Hey a girl can dream right?
