Decisions, decisions...

Hubster and I are in a bit of a quandry.

Threepeat starts junior kindergarten in September and the school regsistration began on January 3rd.

Our quandry? Our school is so overcrowded that it cannot offer all day, every day kidergarten. The only option for our school...the school that Boy Oneder attended and Middleman still attends is Monday, Wednesday and alternate Fridays or Tuesday, Thursday and alternate Fridays. The public school (on the other side of the park from our school) offers all day, every day kindergarten. So, do we send him to our school and have him home for the off days, or do we send him to a five day public school program?

Pros and Cons:

Our school:

Pros:

Middleman and all of our neighbours, including the twins that will be in Threepeat's class are there.

Middleman can walk him to and from school.

He will be getting a Catholic education.

Cons:

He will be home, bored and unstimulated 2 days one week and 3 days the next. He is SO ready for full time school.

Public school:

Pros:

Full day every day kindergarten.

Students are more diversified (ie: all races and religions) so Threepeat will learn about kids that are not necessarily Catholic.

Cons:

Middleman will not be able to walk him to school because he will already be in class (public school starts 15 minutes later).

We have an issue with Realty Taxes...our taxes are allocated to the Catholic School Board (for obvious reasons) and putting one kid into the public system may be a problem (can't allocate taxes to two tax pools).

Sigh...

I know I will look back on this decision in a few years and laugh at my stressing over it, but right now, it kinda sucks not knowing what to do! Pin It
