My 4-year-old begins Pre-K 4 today (special education at Metzler Elementary). She was at Metzler for her Pre-K3 year, and I think she’ll have a lot of fun there this year too. Her school hours are Monday – Friday from 8am – 12noon. At school, she does writing, phonics, colors, numbers, art, imaginative play (dolls, kitchen, etc.). She’ll have music time, motor skills play, lunch, and more. The best thing is that there are only 3 kids total in her class until 11am when 2 additional kids join the group. This will be a great year for her to have some close to one-on-one interaction with her teachers (there’s 1 teacher and 1-2 aides).
We will keep her home with us on some Fridays for special activities, and I’ll pick her up from school early on Tuesdays for speech and occupational therapy.
Happy First Day of School, Callie!
