We're enrolled in an acceptable school for K but it's going to be a tough commute. We're on a waiting list for a school that's closer to home but it's likely we won't hear anything until after school starts, if at all.
If you plan on switching your child to the waitlist school if/when you get in, how are you mentally preparing your child for Kindergarten? Do you tell your child not to get too attached because he/she may not stay there? Do you give your child the impression that the school you don't intent to stay at is "his" or "her" school?
It's been difficult to know how to approach the topic because we don't know where our son is going to end up. We *have* to switch to our waitlisted school if & when we get in because of the shorter commute.
