Hi! I am moving and the French Immersion schools in my childs area are all full atm! My sons home school would also be the French Immersion school he'd be attending but it is full. If he doesn't get into it this year he isn't going to be allowed in next year.
I really believe it's important for him to be in FI. I understand kids do just fine through the English stream but I also think it's important to be bilingual and it will help him in the future. I'm just really frustrated that basically his whole education will be altered because I moved to an area that is already out of space in the program. I didn't live here last year so there was no possible way for me to get him onto the list on time.
I don't know what my options are, I tried also calling some other schools in the area but I do not own a car so I can only get there via public transit. Even so the spots in other schools are also full. I'd even try to get someone to go in with him to provide an extra person if they'd let me but I don't have the money for that or I'd just put him in a French Daycare.
Anyway, thought I would put that out there to see if there was any advice on what I could do.
