My elder one started early with an infant care at age of 6 months followed by a child care then to a kindergarten but all were in the proximity of my office. When it came to my second one, I had a luxury of spending time with kids at home. So, we didn’t start her with any playschool until 18 months. Even though I felt at 18 months, it is not required as such but she used to cry while dropping her brother to school.
So, we started looking for a playschool nearby our home, trust me I was not looking for any big names with endless waiting list where my little one is lost but somewhere with fewer kids and more attention and fun. As a parent, for us teacher is most important as she is the one with whom kids connect and build a relationship.
Well, we found one playschool near to our place and we were equally excited for her 1st day in the playschool.
All set ready to go…… My dad is always there for me !As this was her first step outside the home with all unknown faces and first time when mumma will not be there to accompany her every second.We both have attended the playschool with her and to keep her engaged . She did cried but we were amazed that she was still very cheerful and look forward to it.
We enjoyed the poems, singing and dancing sessions in between but she was observing other kids and teacher. She loved the various activities especially -sorting.Look at their concentration which lasted for a second but you will get the feel as if they can sit (Don’t even dream about it). How difficult it was for all of them to sit for a minute.
