Redshirting for Fall 2021My daughter’s preschool - Plymouth Church School - has a fives program designed for situations like this. The idea is that it’s for kids who may be young for their grade or not ready for kindergarten for whatever reason, so some families keep their kids at the school for essentially another preschool year to give them time to be truly ready for the elementary school setting. It seems like such a good idea to me and maybe helpful for your child.
Review from the 2018/2019 PSP Daycare, Preschool, PreK, Kindergarten SurveyThe school and community are fantastic. The providers are experts in early childhood and development. They have been amazing at helping with transitions and in communication via phone or email when needed. The school is so sweet and the community so special. About the facility: Has outdoor space, Has afterschool options What would you change? Afternoon spots are tough but we love it nonetheless!
2014 Daycare/Preschool PSP reviewProgram: 3s program, and also Time for Twos program (caregiver participation) Length of Time: Half days 3 days/week Child's Age: 2-3 years3-4 years Review: Plymouth Church School is a longstanding community preschool in Brooklyn Heights. It's a very loving and warm community of teachers, administrators and involved parents. I have been so pleased with the time and care the school and teachers spent on transitioning our children, and especially in handling a difficult separation during the transition period. We tried different things, the teachers kept me in the loop very closely, and ultimately we did what my child needed to separate and be comfortable and to trust his new environment. Now he happily bounces into the classroom without looking back and has grown so so much in the short time (2+ months) since class started. The teachers are warm, attentive, responsive, and observant of what's happening with my children. We are so happy with the school. And it continues to grown and improve. Recommend (Hi/Rec/DoNot) Highly recommend Would you send your child again? Absolutely
