I'm over at New England Mamas, writing about the joys of preschool admissions in the Boston suburbs:
So I start calling and visiting the local schools, checking to see
if they had any room for my son. Surprise! They're all full! And the
waitlist? Full as well! Did you know that you have to apply at least a year in advance in order to get into PRESCHOOL?
take a minute here for a reality check: My applications to graduate
school were due in January and by April I was looking for an off-campus
apartment. It takes 3 months to get into business school, but it takes
13 months to get into PRESCHOOL.
