Yesterday was Theo’s first day of school/daycare. After meetings and tours at three different places, we decided on ActyGym Condesa because it had the most flexible schedule (we can bring him for any 4 hours – consecutive or not – between the hours of 7:30AM and 7PM) and because it seemed more focused on play than the other two, which we think will help Theo adjust the quickest. Our neighbor, who we met at Gymboree last week, also brings her son there who is the same age as Theo.
Yesterday was a bit rough. We only left him there for three hours and I think he cried most of the time. Today they said he did much better, and just cried for a little bit when we dropped him off. He participated in the activities and seemed really happy when I arrived to pick him up. His teacher and her two helpers all seem very loving and he already seems to be taking to them. We know he’d be happier at home with the grandmas or Desi, but hopefully he’ll adjust soon and have fun.
