So today, Daddy came along to drop us off at the centre and his first questions to me was "Why so small?" Told him it's a rather new set-up so the numbers is still growing. But I can already sense his resistance to the school.
After he left, Little Nic went around to explore the centre while waiting for the rest of the children to arrive. He was very curious and was looking, poking at everything.
After breakfast, they proceed to the Montessori classroom where the children learn their hands on activities. As for Little Nic, since it's his first day in the centre, the teacher doesn't want to force him to sit down and do it but rather allow him to walk around and watched how the rest of the children play with the "toys". The whole class was total silent throughout and even the teachers whisper when they talked to the little one (1 to 1). I'm a little surprise at this as from my past experience, childcare shouldn't it be lively and "noisy"?
Anyway, my boy did try some of the "toys" but soon finds it boring and started coming to me more often and clinging on, wanting me to carry him. Guessed the environment is too quiet that it makes him feel sleepy (actually mommy feel sleepy too). So mommy decides to call it a day.
At night, after discussing it with daddy, we decided that this centre is not really suitable for my active little boy. So, I'm back to square one again...
