Flannery started school this month. We were soooo lucky that she got into a wonderful preK just minutes from home and my work, AND it's the one so many of my friends had recommended to me.
Flannery seems to like it. At her old montessori school, they called all of the toys and manipulatives "works," and so the other day when I asked her how her new school was different than her old montessori, she said,
"Well, this new school doesn't have any works...it's all just toys, and we don't do any work...we just play!"
A lot of parents would freak out at this news.
But I want her to love school and enjoy learning and not to think of school as work for as long as possible.
So, more power to the toys!
What do you remember enjoying about your preschool experience? I remember building with those large wooden blocks for hours on end, and cracking pecans on the back steps of the preschool during recess. Such peaceful little moments of learning.
