I just got home from Austin's preschool graduation (he will be entering Grade 1 in September). I am still trying to adjust to the fact that my baby will be 6 and in elementary school, it has all happened so fast ... sniff ... :( On the other hand, I am very happy for Austin because he is so excited to go to "big school". I hope that he gets as lucky with teachers there as he did in preschool. I have to say, they are going to be tough acts to follow ... period! I just adore these two teachers and consider Austin so blessed to have had them in his life for the last two years.
I will always highly recommend this preschool to parents; it is a great school! (Kaleigh will be attending in September and she is so excited!) I cannot say enough good things about Austin's two teachers and the preschool. They have provided support, understanding, caring, guidance, patience and have given their own time to attend meetings that included Austin's team involved in his treatment. They could have turned Austin away; they certainly did not have to take on the responsibility of a second year with Austin. (There are plenty of "typical" children on their waiting list.) They could have said "no" but they didn't. Words cannot express how grateful I am to these two wonderful women. Austin's first experience with school could not have been better and I feel so lucky that they offered their hands to help in a time that was so crucial to Austin; to our family ... They are forever in my heart. They are the reason Austin was flagged which led to his diagnosis. They stood by him and helped in every way possible. It is to both of you that I would like to say, I am so very grateful and appreciate so much what you have done for Austin and for us ... THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! *BIG, BIG HUGS*
All the best! :) *HUGS* to all!
