Today I was looking at the available documentaries in Amazon Prime and I found “Nursery University”, this documentary follows some families while they’re searching for the perfect nursery school for their children, and gives us a look at how the application process works, here’s the synopsis from Amazon:
“In communities across the United States, competition to get into the best schools is starting early. New York City is at the center of this phenomenon, where nursery schools – homes of finger-painting, building blocks, and naptime – have become the arena where parents jostle for the privilege to place”.
After watching the documentary I was shocked by how hard it seems to find a spot for your kid if you live in New York, and how the process can be.
I’m married, but I don’t have any kids yet (and I don’t live in New York), but this documentary left me with a lot of questions: how many nursery schools are in the city I live? How many of them are private? How many are public? What is the average annual cost? How the application process works?
I end this post with a question for those who have kids: what was your experience when you had to look for a nursery school or a preschool for them?
