QUIZ TIME! Preschool Catchphrase or Cheese I Enjoy?

QUIZ TIME! Preschool Catchphrase or Cheese I Enjoy?

So I started touring preschools because my baby is one years old and because I have a serious fear of messing up this whole being a mom thing. Also, because a few friends scared the shit out of me about not being to able to get into preschool. PRESCHOOL. So… I started touring preschools. Ridiculous. I know. Anyway, I learned that I need a background in early childhood education to understand half the lingo they are dropping. Mayyyyybe I should be reading up on pre-k stuff but I just started the first Game of Thrones book and I think I’ll stick to that. Because dragons.

My #1 qualification for preschool is location. I want to be able to walk there. And luckily we have a lot of great options by our house. Here's the thing - they all sound like a delicious cheese. No joke, I could enjoy any of these preschools sprinkled on my spaghetti or with a nice red wine.
