Ok everyone here is something that Chad and I are so stuggling with right now. This year Sam has been attending a pre-school program at Best Beginnings at Murphy Hill Baptist Church. It has been an awesome program and I love the A BEKA cirriculum http://www.abeka.com/ (christian based program) that they go by. It is very structured with chapel every day, weekly verse memorization and bible story, along with just learning the basics of letters, numbers, and learning to read. The director is an awesome Christian lady who has worked so hard to help make the program there what it is along with some very great teachers. Sam has done so well this year and we are so proud of him. Well now its time to decide where he will go to kindergarten . The director and majority of teachers at BB are moving to another church in Hazel Green to start another program there called Bethlehem Christian Academy . It will have pre-k through 5th grade and their goal is to add another grade every year. They will still go by they A BEKA cirr. and have small student-teacher ratios, maybe 10 to a class. That is our first option, we already have Sam registered there but in the back of my mind I keep questioning if we are doing the right thing..... The public school option is Lynn Fanning, which I have always heard wonderful things about, I have friends who are teachers there and know that it is a great school as well. We would know probaly at least 15 children or more and their parents that will be starting there next year. So there is that comfort knowing Sam will be with several buddies of his. I have heard that next year due to teacher proration there will be more children added to classrooms and I know that LF is dealing with over crowding. So obviously I have pros and cons to both options!!! Just wondered if anyone has opinions they would like to share. I am not one of these people who are just all for private or all for public!! Although I have to say in this day and time public school in general scares me, especially for the fact that they want to take God out of our schools and that is the very foundation that our kids need. I know we can teach them about our God at home and church.... I just have alot of different concerns! Chad and I are just trying to make the right decision for Sam and go where God would lead us, and I pray that he would show me where that is.
