It should be a magical time of playing in the garden right? In some schools, classes it is. But in most it is a glorified first grade. I hope I make the right choice for Luke. We have 2 choices right now. A class in my school or Seaside Charter Academy. A waldorf school that focuses on the inner child, outside, nature....testing last. The only downside so far, is that we will have to pay for before and aftercare, fundraiser a, etc. So it will not be the money saving year we were hoping for...but it may be worth it.
