When Maya was just an infant I started thinking about preschool. I've always wondered if 3 was too early of an age to send a child to school. I mean 3 years seems to be a young age to someone who has never been around kids. Now that I have had the privilege to be around Maya for 3 solid years, I see that it's just the right age to start school.
As much as I like to think that I've stimulated Maya's mind and body with all her therapies and being in a mommies group that meets 3-4 times a week for play dates, story times, etc. Nothing can replace a setting like school. It may be my imagination but I already see so much progress from Maya. More about that later....for now here's a peek into Maya's first day at school.
|Maya ready for school!|
|This backpack is almost as big as Maya. =)|
|Dada carries Maya to her classroom.|
|As soon as we put her down Maya went into the classroom and started to play in the kitchen area.|
|Maya with one of her aides. When we said goodbye to her she looked at me and then went back to playing. A good start to her first day at school. Yay!|
|Maya looking a little dazed at the end class. Her other aide brings her over.|
|Very, very happy when she saw Dada.|
|She looks tired, but she got her second wind when she got home.|
