I can't believe I have a kid old enough to go to kindergarten this fall! Registration starts at the end of this month. I am overwhelmed by all the things to consider. I have been doing some research online, but still am not sure where I want Tucker to go. Many of the schools now have mandatory full day kindergarten, yuck! I do not think that Tucker or I am ready for that yet. Some still have the option of half day and I think I prefer that route. What things do I need to ask when checking out schools? I can see test scores and children per teacher ratios and parent reviews online, but I still feel totally unsure what is best for Tucker. I think school visits are in order, but will that help much? I don't know, I just want Tucker to have a good experience at school. I want him to like his teacher, to learn what he needs to know and to make friends and find out what he enjoys and excels at.
