NOW

Meeting the school principle was great, he asked us questions about her what she likes to do, if she can do certain things & why we wanted her to attend their school I thought & answered because we wanted her to have a better education than we did.

He asked Bella to write her name on a piece of paper, draw a picture for him & then asked her questions while showing her shapes, she knew them all, he asked for her to find certain colours, she did, he asked her to count, she counted to 18 with few mistakes along the way & then asked her if she knew how to read, she doesn't but she showed him where the words are & what the picture said to her.

Once it was all done he told us she was positively ready to start next year, that in a week or so we would receive a letter in the mail letting us know about orientation day in October & for the days in November she will go for an hour just get the feel of what is going to happen next year.

I feel so much more relaxed now that its all taken the right course, that I no longer need to worry/stress about it, that all I need to do now is continue encouraging & help achieve what she wants to do.

  1. Aw, that's so exciting! It's usual for her to by starting at that age, at least to me. In America, we start school at 4 (kindergarten). And we go all day.

    1. Here its different we start school the beginning of the year if the child is 5 before July 31st they are aloud to attend that year if not they must wait for the next, So next year she'll be 5.5 turning 6 mid year which is perfect.
