It said "We cannot process Hailey's income eligible preschool application for the 2011-2012 school year. Family is over State guideline. You may apply for the fee based program (2,3 or 5 day) at $22.00 per day."
What is SHOULD have said is this:
"You make around $100.00 too much for the state guideline per month for you to get free Preschool. We will HAPPILY charge you $22.00 per day at 5 days a week. We understand that this means you will be paying $440.00 per month, and this totally negates the fact that you make too much over the state guidelines. Welcome to California, bend over and take it." P.S. the fee based schools are 25 minutes away also; so add gas back and forth to your total. Oh, and did I mention it is only 3 hours a day? You might as well enroll her into one class at Fresno State University would be cheaper. Have a nice day.
ANGRY MOTHER RANT WARNING:
What is AWESOME is that if my child was "at risk or being abused, neglected, or exploited" they would accept her. OR or if she is a recipient of Child Protective Services, or Homeless... that would work too. HOW ABOUT I AM A GOOD MOTHER AND I WANT MY KID TO SUCCEED... Oh no, you want me to beat her... OK... let's figure this one out...
THANK YOU. It feels GOOD TO get that out. I feel MUCH better now... :)
SCREW!! So now to find another preschool program... any ideas people??
Oh, and I have already thought about doing it myself... I want another option. THANK YOU.
