This week many lil ones in the Big Apple are waiting on their preschool acceptance letters. According to a Sugar coworker, the rat race (or brat race) begins early in NYC, with many parents believing that where their child attends preschool can determine where they will attend college.
Much like the college application process, parents must first get their hands on applications that are distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis in the fall. They then spend the winter attending parent-only preschool tours, followed by “observed play-dates” or “interviews” for their children. Needless to say, it is not the laid-back process that most of us imagine.
Would you subject your child to such a process? And, do you think preschool is any indication of where your child will end up in life?
