Counting Down to the schooling day…

Finally, more than a year of contemplating, we’ve found Sarah a kindergarten and will start her by next year (I know, for some parent, we are already late).

After “hunting” around for some time, we are quite pleased with the chosen one. This kindergarten has the right (and clean) environment, big compound and the best of all, tight security.

Schooling will be a huge milestone for Sarah, therefore, I’ve started “mentally” prepare her months ago. In fact, we have brought her touring the kindie twice and hopefully it helps.

Next stop, she will have a three-day orientation session on December and we shall keep our fingers cross…

Totally understand how you feel cos Kit boy is also starting school next year. Very excited.

Btw, for the first year of school, Kit boy will be starting on 10th instead of 1st week of January. What bout Sarah?

Kristie said...

Another milestone achievement..Hope sarah will get ready herself for next year and let's her have fun in school.
Ryan will be entering new kindee also for next year onwards....Bit worry because he has to adapt to new environment,but no matter what he has to stay brave and hope he can do it.

I'm also like you, excited when my lil boy first start school (more excited than my son ^__^)...don't worry, they will soon settle down. I'm sure Sarah will like her new school. I like the uniform, very nice!

prince n princess mum said...

I'm sending my son next year, too! I prepare nothing until now, except for paying the booking fee for the kindy.. :)

Alice Law said...

All the best to Sarah sweet pie, She probably won't have much problem as I observe boys are more likely cry baby during their 1st week of schooling!:)

Have a nice day!

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Kitty:
Ya lah..I told my husband "I am afraid I can't sleep tight the night before Sarah go kindy". :-)

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Hui Li:

Anyway, thanks for your comment.
- I like the colour and design of the uniform too.

Agnes:
Good lah right that both our girls will be attending kindy next year...let them have fun and mingle make frens. And the best is, your mommy and me will have more time when they are at school.
- Is it? Chloe doesnt like one piece dress? If I am not wrong, i have seen her wearing it before?

紫清 said...

Though Voei Ton still has long way to reach the school, i can understand your feeling..hehe..
cause we brought him to visit a kindy near our housing estate upon request from grandpa and grandma.. he loves it and can wave goodbye to us when we drop him in the pre-nursery class (for 2+ years old toddler) during our visitation.he seems very excited and talked non-stop in the class when we peeped from outside.

it is very tempting to enrol him but later on, after a long and deep consideration, i still feel it is too early for him to attend the kindy..=(

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Wai Si:
Wah...Voei Ton is such a frenly and outgoing kid. He is easily mix around with other kids and easily adapt to new environment. It is definitely a positive thing for him when he is going to kindy.
- Is true. Somehow I also forced myself to wait Sarah till reached 3 years old only sent her to school. Or else, I will think it will be too early for her...

Agnes Khoo said...

I like her school uniform, looks very smart!

ChloeRuoyi said...

Sarah is going to enjoy school! Children can adapt very fast and I'm sure she'll have a great time making new friends and learning new things in kindy :)

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Agnes:
Thanks!
I like its colour and cutting too.

HweiLi:
I hope she will do well.
Now I will just keep fingers crossed about her kindy life:-)

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Thanks Cleff for your comment.
I am really glad that now Sarah is fully diaper-free.

Mummy Moon said...

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Moon:
Thanks, I like her uniform and colour too.
She has went for her orientation last week. Started to be good but later cried on the 3rd, 4th and 5th day.
Hope things turned better on actual schooling day.
