Concerns before sending Ayden to school
As you know, Ayden is home-schooled just like his elder brother Ethan during his preschool years. However, I intend to send Ayden to school earlier as I believe he may benefit socially in school. By school I meant those enrichment centres that is not classroom type of learning.
We actually planned to send Ayden earlier this year but has been procrastinating as I’ve been busy. We finally made the effort to pay a visit to one of the learning centre nearby my area a couple of weeks ago.
I am very particular if a learning centre is carpeted as little children are very sensitive towards dusts and carpets can cause a whole lot of problem. Boy am I glad that the centre we visited is no longer carpeted. They are using laminated flooring now.
So there I was, sitting comfortably discussing Ayden’s class schedule with the principal while Ayden is in the class with the facilitators and friends. I was so glad that Ayden has no trouble getting into the class. He happily walked inside when one of the teachers asked him if he would like to join them.
I filled up the registration form. Gave them all the necessary details and told them we’ll be sending Ayden come Monday. I did not pay anything yet as I told them I’ll pay when Ayden starts on Monday.
Then it happened. A guy came up to the centre and rang the door bell. The principal asked me who that guy is. I was surprised that she even asked me. She asked the guy and he said he came to pick up one of the students. She called the student out and asked her if she knows this guy to which the student answered YES. The principal then releases the student to him. Just like that! Without calling the parents to double confirm or anything.
My heart dropped into my stomach. Immediately I have a bad feeling of this place. By then the class is over and Ayden happily ran out to me. Ayden was very happy. He loves this place and wants to come again.
I thought about it over the weekend. I discussed with Darling of my concerns. We both agreed Ayden can stay home a little longer. I will continue guiding him. He can learn social skills during his daily playground sessions. Let him be my baby a little bit longer, after all he is not even 3 yet.
