I must admit, I was not a very "diligent" mom when I was scouting schools for Ben. I mean, I didn't visit a lot of schools, but narrowed my choices only to a select few then relied on feedback from my mommy friends. There no regrets, however :) Explorations has become Ben's second home and I appreciated not only the things he learned from school but the genuine concern the teachers and staff have for its students. I have grown and evolved as a parent because of the things I've learned from the people at school. More importantly, with each chat with a teacher, I had come to know Ben better. The same goes with the girls. They really try to treat them individually even if they are twins. I also like that they see teaching kids as a collaborative effort between school and the home. One of the things I surely will miss about Explorations are the regular updates on how Ben is doing.
I admit, I am very nervous about Ben moving up to Xavier. But at same time, Ben and I move up to big school with a grateful heart for everything Explorations has done for us. Enjoy the rest of the school year, my little man!
