We are so fortunate to have a wonderful preschool near our house, and it follows the Reggio Emilia philosophy of learning. Although Sojo just turned two, it's for early learners and centered around art and exploration, not academics, so we went to check it out on Friday as they have an opening. Sojo loved it--from the play structure and beach sand outside to the play kitchen and the huge basket of little animals inside.
On the way back home on our bikes, Sojo announced, "Sojo fun peeschool," so we knew it was a hit. She'll go two mornings a week starting in a few weeks. We could tell she was ready when she took her Curious George lunchbox and headed off on another of her "trips" around the dining room table--this time she told us she was going to preschool.
