I have a child in my class who is exactly the same age as Lucy, possibly even to the minute, and I was very worried in case he turned out to be a genius, being able to count, read, sit quietly on the carpet listening to a story, putting his hand up when he wants to ask a question, translate from English to French and put his shoes on the right feet. Fortunately, Lucy can do all of these things, and he cannot. He isn't ready for Nursery yet; he needs another month or so; unfortunately for him, we are so oversubscribed that his place would be gone in a flash. What he can do is scream and scream and scream. It is heartrending, although less so when he screams and screams and screams until he is sick. I really hoped I was done with sick for the time being, after my washout of a half term.
Lucy, on the other hand, bounces into Nursery, laughing with joy and hugging all the staff members. While it's not really been a choice, putting her in a "pre-school", as I've had to go back to work to fund the Waitrose lifestyle, it's been absolutely the best thing for her, and she's really enjoyed herself.
