Valentine Week is often Family Week in my daughter’s school. Instead of the usual hearts and chocolates, they culminate the week-long activities with Family Day, usually every Friday. There are family games, a presentation from the students, and capped off by salu-salo.  This year, GPS decided to do it differently and made it more personal. From February 13 to 17, each family of the Pre-K class will pick a day and share activities usually done at home.

We want our daughters to study in my Alma Matter. Since we have “issues” (it’s a long story), one of the requirements is that we have to be interviewed by Sister Jo, the school directress.

My baby A is turning three this December and by next school year, we are planning to enroll her for preschool. I was super excited to go preschool hopping and see how my daughter will fare compared to kids her age. At the same time, I want to see how she interacts with other kids and if she will listen to the teacher or not.I started our preschool-hopping last February. (Read my review about the Gymboree Preschool here). The truth is at that time, my daughter was agitated and was not paying attention that much to…

Time flies really fast. And when you have kids, time flies even faster. At first, it’s all about changing diapers and milk and breastfeeding then all of a sudden, things change. The once striving little crawler is now running on her own. And I can’t believe that after two years, I need to start looking for a preschool for my baby girl.As I start my quest for the best preschool, I decided to give Gymboree a try. It’s a familiar place for my little one plus most of the teachers already know her. She also attends…
