Daddy took the morning off today to take Melur to KinderClub with Mommy for an 'interview'.
|KinderClub is a kindergarten daycare facility attached to the U-Hill Elementary School. We walked about 20 minutes along Acadia Road, not bad for a sunny Tuesday morning. We had a 9:30 am appointment, and the walk along suburban UBC was pleasant and quite nice. We were quite excited to check out the new school which Melur will be attending this September. Halfway through the walk, I carried Melur on my shoulders.|
When we arrived, we were greeted warmly by the teacher who showed us around, and gave us an overview of the place. Melur's actual classes at U-Hill Elementary is about 2-3 hours. So she'll need day care for the remaining hours while Mommy and Daddy are working. That's where KinderClub comes in. They'll take care of Melur from 8 am to 5:30 pm, and send her to classes in between. KinderClub will have a separate curriculum involving art, drama and a bunch of other stuff. And all that costs about CAD $600 a month.
|It's a little expensive, I know... especially since we have to pay for Arman's pre-school and day care as well. But hopefully this is just temporary. And I think Melur will have fun with friends at school, and learn more through a more structured environment.|
