Today Chris took Cam to OT so I could visit some pre schools. We are looking at enrolling Cam this coming fall for a couple mornings a week. This search I'm embarking on wasn't exactly in our plan from the beginning. It isn't that I have anything against pre school, I just had always wanted to keep the kids at home until they started kindergarten. However after several doctors (basically all the professionals we have seen regarding Cam) told me that pre school would really help Cam socially, I finally gave in.
I have visited 6 so far, and have it narrowed down to 2. While I look for the typical things like teacher/kid ratio, location, safety, etc., I think my main issue is whether or not the teachers seem super warm and friendly, or if they are just there for the job. I feel like I can gauge this pretty well. I honestly could care less if the teacher went through training on instructing children to be academically successful (he's only 3!!!)). I want teachers who are the nice, sweet, grandma types, who just adore kids. :)
So while the thought of not having him around two mornings a week isn't the most pleasant for me, I know that he will really benefit from all social interaction and being away from me will probably be a good thing. :)
