I attended a Montessori pre-school before attending Kindergarten, there was no JK in those days!
Amazing how being in my EARLY 30's I can still picture as clear as day the classroom, my friends, sitting at circle time talking about the weather, stringing beads for necklaces and more.
I was an only child and for some reason there were not a lot of kids on our street so I didn't have many playmates before I got to school, even now I remember being very shy when I first started at Montessori. I was lucky enough to have not one, but two girls, twins, who chose to befriend me during those first few nervous days. From that moment on we were inseparable for years, even after Montessori and heading to different grade schools. We were always the first attendants at each other's birthday parties, there were sleep overs and days at the park, feeling like another member of each others family. Though we eventually lost touch as children often do when they are not close by, I will cherish those days and my first real friends forever.
I hope my own twins have lifted someone's day at school as those girls did for me, and my twins already have their own (what I hope to be life long) friend they met in JK who already feels part of our family, these days of grade school friendships are the best. :-)
