Lexi had her PreSchool screening this morning for our district preschool. There are many private preschools in the area, but only one of the public district's schools offers a preschool program. Our reasons for wanting to send her to the public school range from getting the most from our tax dollars to having her start school in the same building that she would attend K-3 in to it being one of the better programs in the area.
She scored at age appropriate and qualified for the community program (what we hoped for). Since we originally started this process in January 2011, I'm hoping that we'll be lucky enough to get a morning session spot (8:35am - 11:05am) since she naps from 1:30 - 3:30 most days and afternoon session is 12:35pm - 3:05pm. She will go Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays.
I can't believe we're at a point already of determining schools. Now we have to determine if we want to keep her in her daycare on Mondays or figure out another arrangement.
