Wednesday was a big day at our house.
Ellie started her final year of preschool. It was also her first day at The Childhood League Center (CLC).
Way back in 2008 I called the education director of a school I had heard a whole lot about. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made as a momma.
I had done the “traditional” preschool thing with Sidney for a year (three mornings a week, for a few hours at our lovely church preschool) but I was looking for something different for Sid’s final year before Kindergarten. We fell in love with that place on our first visit and now seven years and three girls later, CLC will take on one last year with one of my girls.
Ellie will have the same teacher as both of her sisters. She will sit in the same chairs.
She will spend four days a week soaking up all of the goodness and love one can cram into seven hours a day. And she will have an experience that will form the foundation for not just her career as a student, but also the foundation for the kind of women she will grow to become.
In 2012 I was interviewed by Columbus Parent about our CLC experience (check out Audrey rocking her Hello Kitty dress).
That place is magical.
