Which nursery school? The writing’s on the wall

Dear Max

After lamenting here and here about what school to choose for you, and after a long time of discussing and thinking, we have decided on School B, which is more of a schlep, but less soul destroying as far as schools go. I know this sounds a bit dramatic, but School B is a more homely, nurturing and “us” environment. Plus you got a spot, at this late stage, and for that I’m grateful and have made a virtual promise to help with the school’s newsletter and website as a thank you to the universe.

I know we should essentially choose schools for our kids first, but in this case I’m choosing both of us. School B is a place I can see myself walking into without a massive complex, helping at cake and candy sales, and getting involved with the “community”. And I think it will filter down to you. And I think you’ll find your groove and your place there, and I’m excited for us, compared to a sense of foreboding about School A, even worse than my own nervousness when I was at school.

Here’s to playdates, learning, growth, paintings, projects and your mom trying to work out the change at the cake and candy sale.

  1. I am so glad you guys decided on a school cool enough for Mom, Max and Dad! PS Every kid loves a mom who works at the cake and candy sale, better get your change making skills up to the challenge ;)

    • Haha, so true. Best I get my abacus out :)

  2. So delighted at your decision. School B is fortunate to have your lovely family join.

    • Thank you for all the support! Looking forward to hanging out with you at parties… Tnx for everything!

  3. Yes, it definitely will filter down!
    Kids pick it up instantly when a person, situation or place puts us on edge, so I’m really glad for you that you’ve found a school that’s good for all of you.

    I also based my choice of creche on the people and their attitudes more than anything else, and I’m glad I did. My boys are happy and comfortable there, and that’s all I really care about.

    • Thanks for that :)

  4. Glad u made peace with the decision and went with your heart! Hope Mac has loads of fun at his new school x

    • Thank you so much :)

  5. I wish I had this settled. I have Baby OL down on a waiting list for 2014 at the school I would really like her to go to but they are already full. I am not left with two choices, neither of which I really am happy with.

    • I hope it goes well in any case. Good luck
