But then I found out that our school (not the whole district mind you) if only doing full-day K. I strongly oppose that for my family. So now I have a dilemma, what do i do????
I could send Miles to his school and just take him out 1/2 day each day. The gal from school thought that would be totally okay with the school and teachers. But I worry about this because I don't want Miles to see everybody else stay full-day and he has to leave each day. And, please, don't tell me to let him stay all day if he wants to, because this is actually something I feel strongly against, for a variety of reason. Even if he wants to, it is not something I support. But I would feel bad if I had him go in the morning and the afternoons are all the "fun times." So do I send him in the afternoons for the fun stuff, and continue to teach him academia at home? Do I do 2 mornings, 2 afternoons, and 1 full-day each week? Too confusing and/or unstructured? Would teachers totally be opposed to that? Or just do either mornings or afternoons, but let him stay all day on Fridays?
Or. . . do I have him go to another school altogether? One where they only do half-day - which is every other school in our district. At first I didn't like this because I would probably have him switch back to our school come 1st grade. I was worried about transitioning him back to a new school, having to make new friends, etc. But some friends I talked to told me that making friends wouldn't be a big deal seeing as a 1st grade class would differ significantly than the K-class anyways. Am I making sense? Would I hate the 10-min. "commute" to his school each day? Etc., etc.
So, please, any feed-back, opinions, comments, etc.? I would love to hear them. Except to send Miles to full-day. I'm not doing that.
