Getting ready for pre-K next year in Richmond
you guys give such great advice that I thought I’d ask yet another question with hopes to get some advice.
My oldest son is starting pre-K next year and we live in Richmond. I’m really worried about the public schools in my area because they just don’t have a good rep. Last year we applied to a bilingual Spanish and English school which is really my dream school, but we are not financially capable to pay $25k per child. And even if we qualified for assistance we were not granted any help. Obviously we were not able to enroll him.
i grew up in Berkeley and although times have changed, i would love it to have him attend but unfortunately don’t live in Berkeley. How can I provide my sons the best education without breaking my pocket and also not breaking any laws in putting him in a school district I don’t live in.
i have to add, my three year old is suuuuupppeeerrr smart and I’m not just saying that because he is my kid, but his daycare teachers tell us all the time that he is really advanced but my biggest fear is that he will not get the right opportunities because he also is very energetic and learns the wrong things as well and I’m afraid of his teachers loosing interest in him (like his daycare does now) because of his energy.
any advice would be greatly appreciated!
