I am a parent of a seven year old and a four year old here in Langford.
This week was kindergarten registration for the school year 2012, which my son will be registered in.
I will wake up at 5 a.m. to be at the school with a blanket, coffee, book and lawn chair two and a half hours before registration starts.
This is what I have to do to get my child a spot in my catchment school.
I am saddened that our education system can’t even ensure a spot for my child to attend kindergarten in the same school as his sister unless I get there before the line up of other parents wanting the same thing.
