What is the procedure at your child's preschool for drop off and pick up each day? My DS1 just started preschool at our school district's program. The preschool is in an old elementary school building that has a semi-circular drop off and pick up lanes that can handle 2 rows of cars.
The school is suggesting that by the time your car reaches the front door that your child should already be unbuckled and a teacher's aide will come to the car and get them out. On the way home the teacher's aide will open your car door and help your kid into the car and you are expected to move your car, pull into an adjoining parking lot, get out of your car and then buckle them in.
I just don't feel comfortable having DS unbuckled from his car seat for any amount of time. What if someone accidentally hit the gas pedal instead of the brake pedal, or what if a car at the end of the line was rear ended and then started a chain reaction?
A group of moms posted on the PTA FB today about how slow the line is going because people are stopping the line to unbuckle/buckle and it's just taking too long. I made a comment on the FB that when my kids are in the car they are buckled... no exceptions...
Am I being "one of those parents?"
