Meet the Teacher

Drew starts school after Christmas Break, so we went to meet the teacher today.  She seemed nice.  Drew seemed to like the classroom, lots of new toys to play with.  They have a pretty strick routine for the 2 1/2 hours they are there.  I think that will be really good for them. 

I guess it feels like a bigger deal than it is, just because it is at the Elementary School instead of a regular preschool.  Since he is turning 3, to continue getting services like Speech he has to go to the school system now.  They offer Pre-K for 3 and 4 year olds with developmental delays.  Most of the kids just have a speech delay.  He is there for 2 1/2 hours a day, there is a teacher and an assistant daily, and a speech therapist 2 days a week.  There are only 5 kids in the class so there is plenty of attention and one on one.   So he will be in the 3 year old class the rest of this year, again next year, and the 4 year old class the following year....that is 2 1/2 years of Pre-K BEFORE he starts Kindergarten.
