No one seems to know where the sweet teacher will be going. I even asked her directly, though Im sure she would not be allowed to say anyway. As far as naps, this was not mentioned. My DS is not much of a napper. They nap at daycare, but he does not nap most days.
Only one girl from pre-k will be in our neighborhood K pool, so I dont have to worry about the friends piece too much. THere are 2 families on my block who also have kids entering K, but I dont know what their plans are. One is SAHM and the other works 2 days a week. I, OTOH, work full time but am often home in the afternoons.
