Visit to boys new school

On Friday we went to see the new school that all 3 boys will be going to.  Name - Die Kinderzeit.  I liked it.  It's a German private school which is structured a bit differently from what we are used to.  One of the reasons we choose this particular school is because there is a German and an English teacher in every classroom.  The classes are also integrated with children from 1 to 4th grade eing in the same room.  Altogether there are 4 classrooms.  Andrei and Ilya will both be going to first grade and will work on the materials at their own pace.  The school has the most amazing outside space.  It's a huge green space with some playground equipment and a tee pee.  I'd be lying if I wasn't a little concerned with both boys going to be in the same classroom but the school said that they would be willing to split them up over the summer if there are problems.

We ran into a little problem with Anton.  Originally, he was supposed to go to preschool type of a group at the same school.  After visiting them and walking through the classroom, it makes a lot more sense for him to go to their nursery for now.  Therein lies the problem - he will be at school from 9AM to 5PM 4 days a week.  I was not prepared for that but after thinking it through we decided to give it a shot.   He will still be in the same school as the boys which is super nice.

We got our list for the supplies needed for the first day of school and went shopping.  Thankfully, we walked in and handed over the list to the worker there and she got us most o the stuff.  Pictures are some of the stuff that we had to buy, some other stuff not in the pictures - rain boots and inside shoes that stay at school, change of clothing and things that I still haven't translated.

P.S. I still need to work on my photography skills!  And once I take more pictures of the actual school I will post them as well.
