Ist Week at Kindy for First Time

My boy is attending kindy for the first time this year. He is 5. On the first day, his daddy accompanied him since I had to be at the primary school with his sister.

He was beaming all the way. He was happy to be in school. It makes him feel important, I think. He likes the idea of having a teacher, making friends, doing homework, having food breaks etc.
He complained that his daddy was disturbing him in the class by taking photos of him. Haha.

On the second and subsequent days, I was able to be there for him. He was still beaming all the way. I saw that he followed instructions very well. He wanted to bring tissue papers for his friends who cried. He sang the songs they taught him happily. He smiled at his teachers and said Good Morning and Goodbye to them. He said Hello and Goodbye to his friends and proudly proclaimed to me that he has 11 friends now. Haha.

I wonder when all this novelty will wear off for him. Hopefully not. Anyway, I am glad that he really likes preschool. I would have a real headache to have to deal with tears at two different locations for two different kids at two different times throughout the whole week. So fortunately at least one kid is happy and feels at ease. Phew!


  1. wah, u r so lucky!

    mine....aiyo....cry like no tomorrow!!

  2. Haha Jesslyn, Luckily, otherwise, I cry also because pening kepala.

  3. Mine one also crazy about school. He is a bit sad today because there is no school tomorrow. I told him, never mind, tomorrow can go to church school and he is happy again. Doh! So lucky hor, get such cheerful kids. With these kind of kids, the weeks just fly by. TGIF!

  4. well, everything turns good finally. I'm happy for you. He's a brave boy, isn't he?

  5. u prepared him well before school? he is indeed very cool..

  6. he sounds like a very sweet child with a good temperament

  7. lilian,
    Hip. Hip. Hurrah. Hehe.

    He wants to copy big sister.

    little lamb,
    I think it helps that he is No. 2.

    Yes, he is very good natured most of the time.

  8. I hope he will love school forever and ever.

    Hmmm....come to think of it, why don't schools have their own kindy...then the transition would be so much easier on the kids no?

  9. Ann,
    Most schools have their own kindy. Both Kebangsaan as well as Chinese School has. Some of my girl's classmates in the Chinese School has attended 2 to 3 years of kindy at the school so they have no problems adjusting. However, the places at the Kebangsaan schools are mostly reserved for the poorer students, I think.
