So, who wouldn't want to go to a school with a TARDIS?! In all seriousness though, today we went to look at a preschool for Stanley, and it totally blew us away. To be honest, we have been swinging towards the idea of homeschooling recently… and looking at ways we can achieve this. But today, this school changed everything. Seeing what they can offer Stanley, we can't possibly send him anywhere but here, and we are going to do all that we can to make sure that happens. The school ethos… the environment… the forest lessons… the opportunities… the staff… the flexibility… the input they have on each child… letting them be themselves… quirks and all… no conformity… no regimental attitude! I never thought it was possible to find a school that shared so many of our views… and a school that is so willing to help Stanley. How could we possibly send him anywhere else after finding this?! We are taking Stanley for a couple of play sessions over the next week or so, and they are coming to see him at home too… so that Stanley can see the place for himself, get to know the staff, and see how he fits in, and what they can offer him. I never anticipated feeling so strongly about a school. We have gone from being so anxious to him starting school… to feeling so excited! I have come away feeling so much more positive about him making this transition. I am sure that it is still no doubt going to be tough for him, but if there's any chance of easing this for him, I am sure that this place is the best hope we haveπŸ€žπŸ»πŸ’›πŸŒ³πŸŒ»
