Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but just in a bit of a dilema regarding my DDs schooling.
She starting kindergarten this year in our local area.
We are now moving house and will be living right near a local school but 30mins from her current school.
We're discussing changing her schools to the one we'll be living near, but we're unsure of whether it's the right thing to do.
She's had a bit of change as it is with a new little brother arriving in Jan, then 2 weeks later starting school, and now moving house.
The move is unavoidable as with DS we've outgrown our current house, and despite searching for the past 6 months, we have not been able to find a rental near her school in our price range.
We're also having to increase our rent and I've just worked out that with her staying at her current school I'll be spending about $40 more a week on petrol just doing the school runs, which will stretch the budget a bit far.
We can see alot of positives to changing her schools, particularly with it being in walking distance from the new house she's far more likely to live near friends (we don't at the moment). We also don't want to leave it until next year as I feel the more settled she is in her current school the harder it will be to change.
... We're just unsure if it will have a negative impact on her.
Does anyone have any experience or advice?
