What's their curriculum?
We were able to take a tour today of the school Chris will be going to - it was their last day so it was a little crazy but everyone was awesome. It was one little boy's birthday - also his LAST day of school - as in, next stop Kindergarten. The director was a little emotional because she'd grown really attached to that little boy. We also got to meet the person who will be Chris's teacher next month. He seems really nice - really down to earth.
He asked what the dx was and we told him that it was going back and forth between PDD and mild autism and he sounded a little like auntie - laughing a little and saying at the end of the day all the kids were ASD. He then asked us about Chris, anything we thought he would need to know about Chris, what his abilities were so far, what were his likes and dislikes - and all of this while navigating a room full of VERY active students. I think Chris will fit in just right with this bunch. Oh boy does this teacher have his hands full.
He was telling us about music therapy and gardening and play time and how 90% of it was social and that he 'snuck in' the academics. I think DH was worried because of the emphasis on social and not so much on academics but this is pre-school, right?
What's it like where your kids go to school?
