DD's class goes on about 5 field trips a year and there are 9 kids and 2 teachers (and 1 assistant) in her class. They always invite/welcome parent chaperons, and what usually happens is that ALL of the parents go. I have no issues with what others do, but my DD likes going to school, being with her friends, and often encourages me to leave her classroom quicker. She always says she does not want me to go on field trips, and again I am okay with that.... I understand that is "her time." I guess my question is, at your kids' preschool, is it common that all the parents accompany the kids on field trips, or is the situation at DD's school a little weird? I thought preschool was a place where DD would associate with her peers, not be like a Mommy and Me situation. TIA!
