I have a 4 year old daughter. Now I should decide whether I should send her to public or private K.

At Horace Mann
How many kids in one class?

How do you or your kids like Horace Mann or Cherry Hill K?

Does anybody think private K is better option, even though Mann or cherry hill schools are considered a good school?
Whatever reason?

I am also worried about bullying or disciplinary issues there.(Because she is my first child and I have no idea about schools nowadays.)

She learns a lot from her preschool now and considered a bright one. I am afraid she ends up repeating 4 year old learning and gets bored in public K.
Do your kids think learning at Mann or Cherry Hill K is challenging, interesting, exciting?

Her preschool has an excellent K program.
I am confused and nervous with all different kinds of information.
At the same time,I think it is just K what am I so worried about.
Can I think it is just K?
Can I put my trust in Cherry Hill schools and just relax?
What do you think?

Thanks in advance

Can't speak about the school you are asking as I am from a neighboring town but I went through with my kids going through elementary school.

First advice is to relax...

Public school. Most public school these days will have a wide range of level regarding kids coming going to kindergarten. Some may have pre-school and can do the alphabet and even read and write while others are still doing the abc... it's a time that parents are more nervous than the kids so just relax.

I don't know if Cherry Hill has full day kindergarten. That's a big problem with lots of the public school. 1/2 day kindergarten is not really helpful for working parents. You end up putting your kid to after school daycare anyway. I went through this a few years ago when my son was not old enough to go straight to 1st. I had sent him to full day private kindergarten after pre-school. He ended up going to public kindergarten again.

School will have orientation and they will help you overcome your fear.
