Am I crazy to reconsider DS's old preschool?
DS was in a local preschool from February thru May 2011.
There, we had a few incident reports of hitting, and I had to be called into the office a few times for DSs behavior (uncontrollable meltdowns). In the office, they would try to explain that DS is having some behavior issues which needed attention - and at that time, we didn't have any evaluations, and we pulled him from the school thinking that it just wasn't a proper fit.
We picked this school because its 10min from our house & work, they only go up to preK4...and its very clean. The classroom sizes are pretty average (16kids to 2teachers).
We tried to place him in the fall in a PreK3 - 8th grade school after the first, thinking the first school was the problem. However 3 days into the 2nd school we were asked to leave due to behavior issues and a large class (35kids in 1 classroom). This prompted me to SAH with him, evaulations to be made, and finally a therapy plan was made.
Over the summer DS was evaulated for Speech and Occupational Therapy. It was found he had a minor speech delay and sensory issues relating to tactile, and we have been seeing therapists for 1mo(OT) & 6months(ST). The OT also works with him on his behavior, and with maturity and practice many can see improvements in him.
We would like to put him in a preschool setting by the summer and enter into fall, and I was thinking about reconsidering his old preschool. Do you think this is a good idea? I felt we didn't see eye-to-eye with them in the past, and I feel it was due to not being armed with the information we had now...WDYT?
