Here is the new K admissions reality - if you want your child in an uptown school do not move uptown until after kindergarten accepts. The schools all now want geographic diversity. Your best bet when applying is to come from a nursery school that understand exmissions but does not have all families vying for the same 10 schools. The so called TT nursery schools are riding on their legacy and sibling relationships. They are not placing new and unconnected families into the uptown schools [ Reply | More ]

"Moms- I need an opinion. I can't help every child in need that I come across. My heart is starting to feel heavy burdened by every news report and article about a child abused to death. People in need who somehow find their ways to me asking for help. It's starting to overwhelm me but I just can't put a blind eye! What do I tell the mother who was kicked out by her boyfriend with their child? He took away all the clothes, stroller, diaper bag, etc? "Because he bought them," he thinks that's OK. This is a picture of the baby left in the hallway alone after the father dropped him off at the building where the mom was staying. I just can't with this world. Mom has no stroller. No clothes. Needs diapers." [ Reply | More ]
