Millie is now in her fourth week of preschool. She is doing pretty well, but we've had our ups and downs:
The mothers each take turns teaching for a week (3 days actually for 2 hours per day) so class is taught in a different house each week. On the second day of the second week Millie started crying and didn't want to go anymore. From what I could gather, the father in that home, works from home and made an appearance from time-to-time and that was NOT OK with Millie. (Don't get me wrong, they are a great family, Millie's just very particular about things."
She made it through that week but when it came time to switch houses again, she was not excited and the night before class I could hear her singing in bed: "I don't want to go to preschool. I want to be 3 years old. I wish I never had a birthday." It broke my heart! Luckily, the next house was a much better experience for her. I just hope she's over it in five weeks when it's time to go back to house No. 2.
I am the last teacher on the rotation so I have yet to teach, and I must say I am a little nervous about teaching six 4-year-olds!
