Which school for a 5-year-old?
We have two choices for next year as we are confident she does not belong in the public K classroom next year
1. Kindergarten at daycare--this is a class with 2 licensed K teachers and about 15 students. It is a combo class of late summer and early fall birthdays. They are able to break into small groups based on skill level. $720/month (this includes lunch and snacks, before/after care and any school breaks)
2. Pre-K at a Catholic school--20 students and 1 teacher, 1 aide. Center based, very little pencil and paper work. $350/month plus $220/month for aftercare (does not include lunch and we would have to find childcare for school breaks at an additional cost).
I would like to know which you think would be best from an educational and social standpoint. Money wise I do not think there is a huge difference.
