Jacob starts Kinder
This week marked the 3rd week of Jacob being at Kinder. I had meant to blog about all of this earlier but I keep running out of time!! I can't believe how quickly and easily he has settled in to it all. I had expected him to be reluctant to let me go but he has surprised me. Yesterday he told me 'you go to playgroup mummy' (Esme and I go to playgroup next door while Jacob is at kinder) because he didn't want me to stay! I'm so glad we made the choice of Steiner kinder for Jacob. It just suits him so perfectly! His teacher is very quiet and gentle. She understands that some kids don't want to be bombarded with attention as soon as they walk in the door so she waits until they approach her. All this has been great for Jacob. Combined with lots of outside play, lots of helping to prepare morning tea together and lots of play with toys made from natural material, he is having so much fun and I feel comfortable knowing he is in good hands.
