mommy moments

Last February, I found a great little learning school (6-10 kids max. Woo hoo!) on a mall while doing our usual "leisure walk" (which is window shopping), where Azumi can attend once a week to learn, play and hang out with other kids her age. I took home a pamphlete and got thrilled with the curriculum so we decided to visit and inquire after a couple of days -- I was actually quite unsure if it was too soon to send my almost 1 and half year old little girl on a pre-school.

Anzu was sold right away lol. On the same day at home, we found her on a corner holding a pen and a paper which she took from the telephone drawer..

I firmly believe that it is on her best interest to get used on being in a group environment away from home thus the course also aims for a smooth transition to Kindergarten. We won't have to worry about dealing with separation anxiety...

And you know what, we just made a very good decision. Our lil girl has become friendlier, jollier, smarter, more cooperative, and communicative since her first day of school.

  3. Hajimemashite, dozo yoroshiku kahit sa blogs lang :)

    I had my son registered in a kindergarten (daycare montessori) at 2...he get to speak with other kids and play and learn interesting stuff...and these adds to his good character all in all. Kakatuwa kids when they move up to something pero nakakamiss din ang pagiging baby :)

    Azumi wa totemo kawaii! Hope you both enjoy her school time together!

    P.S. Yes, we're permanently living in Vienna.

  4. Kawaii baby! Congratulations on your baby's development...surely, madami pa yan and I hope you enjoy them both! Happy weekend!

  5. Hello Bambi! I didn't see you in Mommy Moments list..just blog hopped. I also did what you did when Aori was 2 1/2 because he's the only child at home.. Its an added blessing Anzu's school is in a mall, you can hit 2 birds with one stone :) hehe..

  6. I bet you're also enjoying yourself while letting her go to pre-school coz there's a lot of interaction between you and Anzu and other kids and Moms playing games,dancing,and singing together.I'll be missing those with Haruka coz she will start na saraishu sa kinder.With Wakaba naman,derecho cya sa kinder without attending pre-school coz we're living with my PIL that time--I thought of anxiety separation or some other'blues'on her first day of school pero ok naman and she did get along well with her new classmates.

  7. ohhh... super cute ni anzy sa crown nya sis.. she really looks like enjoying making many poses in front of the camera.. haha.. parang si askim.. she would always wait for the flash and she knows it when to display a smile :D

  8. wow. azumi is going to school na? hehe. try mo, sis. malay mo type nya. parang play school lang naman yan.

  9. I so love her photo holding hte pen, good thing you captured it Bams!

  10. She is moving up talaga, sooo fast. look at her she even know how to hold the pen.

  11. medyo parehas tau ng post sa previous entry ko here lolz. im was posting picture of freya holding a pencil properly as well.

    anyways, looks like azumi is enjoying the school already. Thats good for her and for you mommy bams less work ka na. As for myself I need to teach my kids cos they/they'll go to public school kung saan madaming studyante na tinuturuan. 29 student in one classroom. i dont think matuturuan ng maayos bawat studyante. may advantage din for me naman kasi mas nakikilala ko mga anak ko kasi madaming bonding na nangyayari at one-on-one or face-2-face teaching. I also wish na sana at such young age eh tumatangap na mga school dito. you know how tamad I am XD

    Anzu is a lucky baby!

  12. wow...mommmy Bam...super super cute and sweet talaga nang kawaii mo oj...parang nag-enjoy sya sa pag-susulat ah...I like it...

    Dalaw lang dini sandali...take care and keep i touch...

  13. Yes indeed, that was the best decision you have made so far for Anzu. Na accelerate ang kanyang growth and maturity at naging komportable na rin siyang makipag interact with other children of her own age. Pag dating niya sa regular kindergarten class ay hindi nyo na poproblemahin ang separation fears katulad nang nararanasan nang mga ibang bata na unang nahihiwalay sa kanilang magulang. Naaalala ko yung bunso kong prinsesa nung una ko siyang hinahatid sa nursery class niya. Ayaw bumitiw sa akin at nakayakap sa aking hita at panay ang iyak. It took us almost two weeks para makapag adjust siya sa bago niyang karanasan, lol. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.

  14. my gosh...she's growing up so fast.....ang cute! love looking at her with her backpack on.....:)
