dd has been going to this school for 1.5yrs. It's run by a church and offers 1-3 day/week for 4.5hrs. I've always done 2 days though almost all do 3. I want to save $ plus I like the ability to make-up a day.
My dd just turned 4 yr last month. School starts this Tuesday. There are only 4 classes in this school, a 12m-24m, 24m-30m, 3-4, 4-5. Most classes have 6-9 children. My dd was put in the 3-4 class where 1/2 the kids will do K next year. Her bestfriend's, whom just started the school this year, parents called the school this weekend to move to the 4-5 class (he's 4.5yrs) and I wondering if I should, too. dd was in class with 2 of the 3 yr children last year and likes them alot. Problem is my dd is starting to write and learn letters (mostly her own doing) and last year nothing taught reguarding letters. While the teacher states that both class will be doing the same lessons, I feel dd might get more out of it with the older children around.
Any opinions out there about kids and learning with different agemates? dd is an only, meets a friend at the playground once a week, and does library time once a week. She really needs preschool for a social outlet but I would also like to see some learning.
