As working parents, we have to choose quality child care and schools. I was fortunate to have a public Hammer Montessori elementary school in San Jose when my children now 17 and 19 where young. My nieces and nephews in the Philippines go to a private school simply because the elementary schools have no budget for books, facilities and other important school tools that some buildings have no roof even.
The “Outliers” book tells you that exposing your children to opportunities to learn and grow holistically can have a greater impact in their successes and growth.
I was a stay at home mother of two who did not send my children to a preschool or kindergarten but exposed them to all creativity and learning that my time can afford. My 19 yr old son who goes to De Anza College also works as a computer technician while my 17 yr old daugther won the second best artist award in the bayarea. I observed their social skills and decision making abilities, and they are better than me at times although I have to plant the spirit of confidence and dreams of successs in their spirit each time I meet them. To be hopeful and to persevere and to think outside the box, be a street smart person.
Instead of spending $22,000 per year to a preschool, we can allocate the same amount for a college plan. Contact Connie Dello Buono 408-854-1883, CA Life Lic 0G60621 firstname.lastname@example.org
