Two hours? Two hours. That’s how long most of the preschool programs that we were considering are set to last. So, just enough time to get Olivia there and come back home, get Violet undressed think about composing an email, have a sip of warm tea and it’s time to start getting Violet dressed to go and pick her back up.
Three times a week. Three times a week day interrupted around a crazy 2-hour preschool schedule. Two hour preschool, you’re stupid.
As a work-at-home-mom, two-hour preschool doesn’t make any sense and yet there are very few options available for full day preschool.
There should be more options for full day preschool. We found one, only one, through the county. We’re sending Olivia on her way Friday mornings at 9 and we’ll pick her up at 3pm.
She’s chosen her backpack from Amazon, she’s picked out her outfit and explained to me that she needs to get purple hair before her first day of school. She’s four going on fourteen and she’s going to full day preschool.
Frugal Bonus: Full one day of preschool for three months comes in at $340 – compared to $750, the cost I would pay for one day of childcare weekly in the dayhome we use for part time care.
