So Far So Good

Tuesday, April 26, 2011

This is the third week of Via's summer pre-school. I haven't yet decided whether to enroll her for the full year this June. Daddy says she's still too young and she should just play and we can teach her the basics at home. I said let's see after the summer classes are finished.

As early as now I'm asking around for a good school. It's tricky because most of the good schools are catholic schools. I'm trying to look for a non-denominational school like The Learning Tree where my officemate's children (they're Baptist) went to school.   

I like Via's pre-school especially the sign outside the door that says, "They come as gifts, they leave us gifted." I also like the ways they progress. Yayas are now asked to stay in the waiting area and leave their charges by themselves in class so they would get used to being by themselves. Via's doing alright compared to 2 of her classmates who cry non-stop when left alone. I asked Yaya to video Via when there are activities and during snack time and so far, I'm happy with how she's doing. She sits right in front of the teachers and is attentive. She joins in the activities although there are times that she does her own thing. Most of the time though joins in. Attending Sabbath school has helped her understand instructions.

I cannot gauge if she likes going to school. When I ask if she wants to go to school, sometimes she says NO. But then, she says No a lot these days. So I guess it's best wait for summer school to finish and talk to the school directors to assess if she's ready to go to school fulltime.

At her age,I think it's good to enter pre-kindie for socialising not so much for learning. Right? :)

Hi Lina, That's right! Thet mostly do story telling, action songs and a little art.

i agree with your husband. i prefer to just teach the basics and let them just play. anyway it will be their routine and a continuous process, once they started schooling.

@Carina: yes, i agree with him too, it's just that she's with the yaya all day and i don't want Via to be influenced by the yaya too much. Hard to be working full time when I would rather stay home and take care of Via. :(

if she's already delighted to go to school, then why not? i'm not sure about my little girl, though because she's still very clingy. i don't think she'll love it if i'll send her to pre-school this early.

Hi Meretrisha, you're back! :) Your baby is a few months younger than Via and actually it's too early pa din for Via. Kaya lang ayoko that she's with the yaya all day everyday. Thanks for visiting!

I think your husband is right....don't stress out yourself with the school that much. Just send her to some school that teaches values and enhance skills through playing. You can supplement it with Christian values by reading her Bible stories and telling her about Jesus.
