To School or not to School...


I did the research, I searched High and Low, and found an awesome Preschool close to our house that reflects our values. Vivia went a few times over the summer to get acquainted with it~ AND LOVED IT! For the most part. On a couple of days, I had to leave her there whist she screamed "I don't wanna go to school!!!!" THAT was hard to turn around and leave...
But daily she's asking for her teacher Miss Darby. And saying "are we going to school today?"
The school called and asked if they could go ahead and enroll Vivia in their 3 year old class, because she talks and behaves on a 3 year old level. Of course, me: proud parent, says "Sure!" I did tell them I wasn't sure we were going to do it- but now I have to decide because it starts on MONDAY. This Monday...
I just don't know if it will be more hassle than anything, especially once PRCM arrives in a few weeks... What if we are up all night with him just in time to wake her up to take her to school? And I have to wake him up to get her in the car???
UGH.
I know she would love it, and as long as it didn't affect her behavior negatively, I would love for her to have something that is her own... Which was the whole point from the get-go. She's so smart, and I am at home working, caring for PRCM, my girls, etc. not teaching her the ABC's and how to read. I have to make up my mind asap. We have the money in our budget, but of course, we could spend it on other things always.
Hmmmm...
I am leaning towards NOT. Will let you know...

I would say "go for it". I am so glad we eased Canaan into school by starting him in a program like that. He loved it and I loved having some special time with Ezra while he was at school.
