Well, my daughter is officially registered for kindergarten, and it is a very intensive process. But wait a minute, she's not starting kindergarten until this fall; right?
Yep. But there's a ton of paperwork and other miscellaneous activities.
So far we've been to kindergarten roundup (at night), one school tour (during the day), and we have one open house to go. And she's not even officially going yet.
Of course, you do realize that kindergarten is only about 3 hours a day. What are we going to do for the other 21hours? Well, hopefully she'll sleep at night. And we're lucky. They have an onsite daycare. It will be almost half the amount we're paying now. Whoo-hoo. I am so excited. We'll have money to pay for music lessons, dance lessons, and Korean class lessons. Yeah. We thought we were going to save some money for a second. It's not going to happen.
But back to paperwork. We had to submit the original birth certificate, a signed sheet from the doctor and her little yellow immunization card showing that she received all of her shots, a paper from the dentist, proof of residency, and some other paperwork my husband filled out.
It's been great bec. my husband has been taking care of everything. I just have to show up, but it is a lot of work.
So for those of you who have kids starting in the fall, get going!!! With budget cuts and all, make sure yours kids have a place!
