My son is going to be in PreK when school begins in August. Our school currently has only two PreK classrooms-mine and the room next door. He is a very young 4 (actually he won't be 4 for two more weeks) and has a history of having a very difficult time with separating (mostly at daycare in the mornings, but also some at church, etc) which only lasts a few minutes, but is very dramatic. I'm worried that having him next door is going to be a problem next year. After the initial separation in the morning, he will see me at breakfast, in the hallway, at lunch, and possibly on the playground. I don't want him getting upset every time I pass him in the hall So, I'm thinking of putting him in my class next year. I am pretty confident that he will be doing two years of PreK because he is so young, so he could be in the other class the following year after he has had time to mature a little and a year of experiencing being with other teachers for special classes, etc. My husband doesn't think this is the best idea. He says that he's sure our son will be fine in a few days-but my son doesn't have this problem when dad drops him off. (my husband has to be at work at 6am, so having him drop off isn't an option). What do you think? I'd love to hear pros and cons from anyone who has been their own child's teacher or known someone who has. I have three daughters and haven't had any problems with them making this transition-with the exception of my oldest's first fire drill when she came running to me because she was scared I really want to do what will be best for both of us in the long run.
