cock-a-doodle-dooooo.

we took a tour of a school on sunday, one i really, really liked for the boys. they have chickens and roosters on campus, which the boys really, really liked. we have a year to figure out how to financially do this before we need to enroll for kindergarden. any and all suggestions welcomed.

  1. is kindergarden considerably more expensive than pre-k at your school? and what about the local schools- are they bad, not too bad or you simply do not want them in the public schools? we are still deciding on our options, too…

  2. hey esther!! the price for private elementary school is about the same as pre-k except the day ends at 3 instead of 6 and it’s for 9 months a year instead of 12. so when you add on the extra hours you need to cover somehow (after school programs or afternoon nanny, summer camps, etc.), it becomes WAY more expensive. i’ll send you real numbers privately if you want to know them.we moved to an area with excellent public schools, however, the school the boys are supposed to go to has become unacceptable in the two years we’ve lived here. there was a redistricting and a change of principals and the school really went down hill fast. i do not want to send the boys there—it would break my heart to do so.

  3. Exciting! Which school did you end up looking at? (I know you probably don’t want to say on here, is it one you mentioned in your email – which, I have lost. Argh!) I so feel for you, I am stressing and we only have to worry about one next year!

  4. yes, andrea! it’s the one i mentioned. i definitely don’t want to mention by name on the blog, but i’ll email you!

  5. I’m not entirely sure where you live in Atlanta. I grew up in the Johns Creek area and was redistricted many times. It may be easier for them to transition if they can get into pre-k and stay at the same school?Principals do change. My mom just retired from Fulton County and I could probably seek advice from her on things 🙂
