Tackle it Tuesday — Preschool Registration Take TWO

by Janice

Browsers ready, practice forms completed, we will wait until our computers hit 10:00pm and then — REFRESH! If we are lucky enough to get the site to load for use, we will type like the mothers on a mission that we are: to enroll our girls in the best preschool in our city.

We are veterans at this game after enrolling Jackson and Julia in preschool and then, even more stressful, enrolling Jackson and Julia in the highly coveted, not enough spaces, French Immersion program.

For the preschool, it is about typing fast, connection speed and praying the site loads.

For French Immersion, it is about phone lines — as many as we can have going to get our call through. We had 9 phone lines going when we registered our kids, and thankfully both times we got through in time.

Last year, we successfully enrolled Olivia and Sophia in preschool. But we ended up switching to a preschool within walking distance and Sophia decided after the first week that she wasn’t ready for preschool.

So for next year, Susan wants to try to put Sophia in the other preschool — the one that Julia attended, the one for which it is so hard to get a spot.

And if Sophia is going to brave the world of preschool, well, we will have to have my Olivia there to hold her hand!

Thus, in 20 minutes, I will be poised at this machine, ready to go for preschool registration take two!

But enough about us… what about YOU???

Happy Tackling!

What are you tackling this week? Link up your Tackle it Tuesday post…

Each week on Tuesday, we are posting before and after pictures of a project or trouble area that we tackled this week.

Find out more about Tackle It Tuesday here.
The project can be little or big – whatever you want.

Basically, Tackle It Tuesday is about giving ourselves incentive, deadlines and satisfaction in getting our household tasks done.

(It doesn’t even have to be housework… just whatever is on your To Do list.)

Wow, I totally take it forgranted that it is so easy to get into a french immersion school here in Canada. We have quite a few choices where we live. My children also attend a French Immersion preschool.

Hope you got in!

Good luck! If that doesn’t work move here.. our pre-school barely has any kids as it’s more community based but they are excellent.
