DD is 3.5 and there are so many options where I am I'm starting to get confused & don't know which is best! I know ultimately the decision lies with me but I would love some advice.
She has been in daycare for one year and moved up one room in that time. She loves it, but the educators have said her intelligence levels are much higher than the other kids and she sometimes seems under stimulated. I've had a few people recommend Early Learning / Pre Kinder programs at a number of private schools in my area, but we probably started looking into it too late and can only find 2 days placement for next year - if we take this, she'd still have to be in daycare for 1 day as I work 3 days. I might be being silly but I just feel like that may be confusing for her? The pre kinder environment is a bit more rigid, it's basically a school day from 9-3, they wear a uniform, have specialist lessons.
DP is keen to continue to send her to the same private school for the rest of primary, but it's phenomenally expensive, we're going through a few financial changes right now & I'm not sure we could afford it ongoing...say we couldn't, and she went to the local public school instead, that's just so many changes in a short space of time. Daycare, pre kinder, kinder, we've also recently moved house. Maybe it's just my own struggles to wrap my head around all these changes myself?! But I feel like it may be better to leave her at daycare another year til she's kinder age, then see if we can afford this school long term. Pre kinder was never even a thing when I went to school & I did ok 😂 Or am I depriving her of opportunities such as the specialist music & PE lessons this school has...do they even need that at age 3?!
Sorry for the rambling, I'm so confused haha. Let me know what you would do!
