Today Max and Madeleine visited their future preschool, The Experimental Education Unit at the University of Washington. http://eeuweb.org/ They had so much fun! the other kids there were older than them but the twins didn't seem to be intimidated. They loved all the toys and did really well in circle time, considering it was their first one! They even had snack with the other children and ate out of bowls and sat in big kid chairs. I wish I had had my camera.
Madeleine did the hand motions with the teacher during circle time and Maxy was so rivited by the song she was singing- he just stared. For most of play time Max stayed in the play kitchen area, while Madeleine enjoyed playing with the pretend guitar and musical instruments.
The teachers there are so positive and supportive. You never hear the word "no", but rather "let's find something else to play with" or "be careful of our other friends". I'm so happy this will be there environment soon. They will go two days a week for an hour and a half each day.
