Sunday School for a 3 Year Old

Hello - I am thinking about starting to go to church with my daughter. I have no experience with church and a child. At her age, will she actually be in a Sunday school with structured activity, stories, etc or will it be more of a nursery/playtime thing? I am sure each church is different, but can you tell me what your 3 year old does in church? Thanks much!

Seeking After School Care for Kinder

My son will be ready for kinder this coming year and I don't know what to do about after school care. He's currently in preschool that offers a full day program through elementary but I'd like to look at other schools as well. I'm having a hard time finding an after school program in my area. The schools I've looked into only have after care for 1st grade and up. I work full time. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Homeschooling a 3 Year Old

Any advice on starting a cuuriculum for my 3 year old. I'm a SAHM and our budget is slim, right now I can't afford to get him into half day preschool. The least expensive I've found is $95 a week. So I've been seriously thinking of homeschooling him. What advice, websites and curriculum can be beneficial and easy to teach. Thanks moms

Seeking "Gifted and Talented" Preschool and Playgroups

My daughter Alex's preschool teacher has informed me that while she'd love to keep her in her class, she felt like Alex belonged in a gifted program. She's not quite 3 years old and already writes her name, is close to reading (at a very basic level; putting letter sounds together, etc. and typing words on her computer), and just in general functions more at a 4-5 year old place. Is anyone aware of "gifted and talented" preschool programs in Colorado? We live in the Castle Rock/Parker area (about 30 minutes south of Denver), so close to...

3 Year Old Behavior...

Hello there...I am looking for new tricks to have up my sleeve when dealing with my 3 year old daughter. As of late she has taken to shrieeking when put on a time out. I also have not been able to get her to say "I'm sorry for _____" once she's out of her time out. She flat out refuses and walks away or says she "can't". She also has taken to talking or raising her voice over mine to repeat herself when told "no" in getting something. This she picked up from me due to my using it when she started repeating herself so say "noooooo" over her....

Preparing for Kindergarten

My oldest daughter will be starting kindergarten in a few weeks and I'm in a flurry trying to get everything ready. Gathering school supplies, clothes, making after school care/child care arrangements, making sure I have all her records with the school. I started to think about it that we are doing everything within our power to make this new transition as easy for her as possible but no one is preparing me. :) I was looking at the Welcome to the School Letter that I received in the mail and almost burst into tears. I remember bringing...

Is There a Pre Pre K?

Hi I heard that there is a pre pre-k for children under 3 years old. Does anyone know of a school that offers something educational (not day care) for kids under 3. My daughter is 2 yrs old, I would like to put her in a class that would prepare her for pre k (and give me some free time, and it would get her to be less attached to 'mommy') thanks!

My 4 Year Old Gets Homework....

My 4 year old daughter is in preschool and gets homework once a week. Her teachers really want the class to be prepared for kindergarten, so they give homework so that the information is reinforced at home. However, no one I know who have young kids in other preschools get homework. I am just wondering if anyone else with children in preschool bring home any homework. I think that it's a bit much for a 4 year old. She goes to a pretty academic preschool, but i have never heard of a 4 year old coming home with homework, even if it is only...

Unruly 3 Year Old

I wrote a couple of weeks ago and i really need some advise. My 3 year old girl is completely out of control. She does not listen to anyone, she is horribly bratty, and has no regard for anyone else. When we are with other children, she will rip toys away from them, push them, and is ALWAYS the boss. But, she is the first to cry when someone else does something to her that she doesn't like. She has started talking baby talk all the time. It's not an attention thing, because I give her attention 24/7 and try very hard to be patient. ...
