Essential if you care for children.. or if you work with people who act like one 😬

(Question) I would love to know, when is the right time to consider if a traditional school (kindergarten) setting isn’t working for my child, yet, and whether to consider a delayed start or even homeschool communities. My 4 year old says he doesn’t like school (he says he likes his friends and the teachers are nice, but that he’s scared and doesn’t enjoy the activities, that they don’t have good toys or enough time to play with them). He doesn’t enjoy taking part in songs for example and when he tries to discuss things that interest him, I think he feels brushed off a little if it isn’t relevant to what the teacher is talking about in circle time. So I have my reservations about the school, but am not sure if this is just the way school will be most places. (I am British but my husband is HK Chinese, so I am trying to be supportive to learn Cantonese in a dual language kindergarten. However his English is definitely more dominant so my son has adapted really well and is eager to try and speak Cantonese with his Dad, despite it being a tough language. The local school system is definitely more academically focused but we’ve done our best to try and find a local Kindie that’s as child-focused as possible). In the past, he’s also attended Reggio Emilia/Montessori/Forrest School playgroups and has loved those - however they are all strong English environments and so Chinese was difficult to fit into his day besides mornings with his dad.

Basically, a more structured environment has been met with a lot of resistance. He desperately begs for more time to play after school, which I try to give him as much as possible (no tv during the week) and my husband and I aim to be present and engage with him with as much quality time as possible, e.g cooking together, walks, river play, sports and unstructured play like LEGO building which he loves etc. But he’s often begging for more playtime in the evening. Which makes me feel like he’s not getting enough unstructured play and whether my attempt to help his Cantonese language/culture exposure is coming at a negative cost to his natural learning and play needs. He’s only at school for afternoons and has mornings and lunch with me and his baby sister.

I’m currently focussing on validating his feelings, comforting him and playing back what he says to me like, “Yeah, I hear you don’t like school, you feel it’s boring, you don’t like the toys, that’s really hard”. He really misses his Dad each day as well and so far it’s really helped to say “Yeah, you’re missing Daddy, I miss him too, I know you’d love to hang out with him all day, I would too!” This has really helped and immediately comforts him and he moves on.

But I don’t know if, in the same way as missing Daddy, his dislike for school is a phase of letting him express his emotions or if I need to consider that he would be better suited to a delayed start/local homeschool community. On the one hand I know that helping them overcome challenges will help on the path to being resilient later on. But I’m trying to also observe if his almost daily sadness and disappointment about going to school is pointing to this being the wrong fit for him and I should consider my child’s needs, development by resisting the societal flow and expecting my child to fit into the traditional school system for his age. I should mention that we did try 2 terms at a wonderful English speaking kindergarten before this local one, but he had the same response of not wanting to go.

Thank you for doing this podcast, I’m so grateful!
