I can’t believe my baby is off to kindergarten in the Fall. I filled out all the paperwork and turned it in last Friday – and then had a cry in the car.
Where we live we had a choice of 2 publicly funded boards (public or catholic) and private schools – although you don’t have to be catholic to attend either publicly funded board. We really can’t afford private school, so we chose the closest catholic school – we had heard good things about it and it’s within waking distance, unlike the public school which would involve driving or busing. We also did some research on-line on school rankings and it’s in the top third for schools in our area. But honestly, the word of mouth and the fact that’s it’s so close where the biggest factors – plus we didn’t really want to research too much as these types of things are dependent on so many factors.
