I am SAHM with one child. My husband suggested placing our son in a preschool this year at age 3. I had no intentions on doing this until he was 4 or even skip preschool all together. My mind changed because I realized my son rarely plays with kids his age. He is severely peanut allergic and we haven't found an adequate play date. We moved, so we aren't close to friends with children and family aren't around consistantly. I know that it would be healthy for him to play with children his age, So I found a two days a week program at a Montessori school. My problem is even though the school is peanut free I have such great anxiety over sending my son to school. I feel that if he freaks and clings to me I won't be able to drop him off. I cried just writing the registration check. Is there any advice for my situation?
