Our little big boss, Zach, is 31 months old today and it is really evident that he is growing so fast. He also learns faster as to compare to his age. However, knowing that he has no one to play with here in our house but me or his daddy, it would be best, I guess, to enroll him in a play school this summer 2016.

I have actually sported some good idea if it is appropriate already for a toddler to send in a playschool. I have talked to mothers, teachers as well as pediatricians for me to be able weigh the pros and cons. There are mothers who agreed on sending toddlers to playschool. But they suggested those school who offers only an hour or two to toddlers. This is because for them, it is not really advisable to force the kiddie minds of child to get mature. There are also other mommies who suggested a more than two hours of exposure to playmates and school stuff is enough to practice the kids in learning and classroom settings aside from solely playing inside the playschool. Many pediatricians advised me like the latter and others, the former.
My final verdict?
Well, I think I need to enroll Zach because I can see him needing playmates. Yes, I am here beside him, guiding and playing with him but it is not always good for him that I am just the one he mingles with and to me as well. Now that he is growing, he is learning things faster and needing someone of his age to talk, communicate and play with, having him in a playschool is the best idea that I need to consider.
The best playschool I can think of for his needs and of his ages is the one that only offers a two-hour session for him. My little man easily gets bored with stuff. What I mean is if he already knew one thing, he has this “I need to get over this because I already knew this” attitude. But he has a focus on some thing if you try to let him to but as I have mentioned, once he already knew and have a good grasp of something, he don’t want it to be taught to him over and over or repeatedly.
Lurking around here our area, I have not seen one playschool that is what I need. So I have to sport online and I found Bullfrogs & Butterflies Childcare. I just so wish there is one like this here in our area.
