My son is entering kindergarten this year and I have no idea what I'm going to do.
Since he was 6 weeks old he has come to school with me, I have always been there. This is the first year to be apart.
My fiancé and I work long days and he is full time in school traditional half day kindergarten is not going to work for us. Plus we are moving (we are purchasing his parents home) and will be in the new house next January) I have 3 options for school.
1. Send him in district we are in now. 1/2 day kindergarten for free plus I need to pay before and after care for him. (Maybe not both but planning for both). Move to new district next January and switch schools. Pray there is a full day spot and still probably have to pay for full day and before care but not after. Or take half day and find care for after.
2. Apply for him to be a Tuition student in new district at beginning of year. This will be half day. Pay before and after care. May be able to have full day if spot open but chances are slim and can't count on this spot. Also won't find out if accepted till August 1.
3. Send to private school. One price for all day care. Most expensive option though.
