Ah yes! Kindergarten. Signs of the beginning of the end of the baby stage of a kid’s life. It’s the beginning of the school life, the first step in the ladder which consists of elementary, middle, high school, and finally college. It’s also a sign that your cute, little, clumsy toddler is growing up. They really grow up so fast.
It can be really tedious looking for the right school to put your kid in, especially when you’re doing it for the first time. When you finally find that perfect school, not just the first kid, but the younger siblings will eventually go there. This saves you the stress of looking for the right school every time.
Another benefit this brings is the experience you give the younger ones before they come of age. They’re able to see the eyes of the school through the eyes of the older siblings. This creates a sense of eagerness in them and they can’t wait to experience that academic heaven for real.
There comes a time when the kids have to go to different schools. This happens when the older kid is old enough to switch to middle or high school. This change could lead to the young ones missing their older siblings but at the same time, creates that feeling of Independence. No more big bro or sis telling them what to do. The school is now their fortress (just make sure they don’t take it literally).
At the end of the day, sending your children to the same school creates that extra bond between them as they experience life in a different environment, one without their parents, and they do this together. They also learn to make new friends and talk with kids their own age. The younger siblings will look up to the old ones and sit up in their school work and work towards getting good grades.
The results? Just you being glad you sent your kids to the same school, relieving you of the headache of looking for a different school every year.
