Despite the early intervention’s transition to Chicago Public School at a mere 2.5 years old…we are opting out. Moose isn’t potty-trained, doesn’t talk much, and I know in my heart he isn’t ready.
Since all Early Intervention therapies stop cold turkey once a kid turns the magical age of 3, I am on a mission to make sure he is getting what he needs. This kid craves movement, loves swimming, and NEEDS to move.
Honestly, I don’t think 3 year old preschool is for all kids. Not this kid, who is barely 3.
Circle time can wait.
For now, we can fingerpaint at home.
So, thanks, Chicago Public Schools, but we will see you next year.
