Glad it worked out! Coming back to a school routine after vacation time is SO hard! Not just for 3 year olds! My six year old is over it now but last year in kindergarten, she had a hard time readjusting after each school break.
If you love it, think it is the right place for her, have positive feelings about leaving her there, and she cannot articulate any specific issues you have after various ways/times of asking her, then all is probably fine. I think you made the right decision.
I am only a very small fraction AP so I have different opinions than most on this board, but I don't think that a child (or an adult for that matter) can make every decision for themselves. It is wonderful to be respectful of their thoughts. You, as the parent, have more experience and understanding - where the child does not. There are times when a child may need medicine or a shot that they don't want. I don't blame them and would try to be as loving as possible in helping them deal with it but in the end, their wishes may not be followed. Same with school, work, etc. It is great to get their opinion and try to follow that when possible but it is not the deciding factor in most cases IMHO. I am sure others will disagree strongly. You can only go with what you feel is right for your family.
Glad she is happy back at school now!
