The Q at Parkside

(for those for whom the Parkside Q is their hometrain)

News and Nonsense from the Brooklyn neighborhood of Lefferts and environs, or more specifically a neighborhood once known as Melrose Park. Sometimes called Lefferts Gardens. Or Prospect-Lefferts Gardens. Or PLG. Or North Flatbush. Or Caledonia (west of Ocean). Or West Pigtown. Across From Park Slope. Under Crown Heights. Near Drummer's Grove. The Side of the Park With the McDonalds. Jackie Robinson Town. Home of Lefferts Manor. West Wingate. Near Kings County Hospital. Or if you're coming from the airport in taxi, maybe just Flatbush is best.

Kindergarten Freak Out - Lefferts Style

The notices went out. Some parents are pulling out their hair right now, some swiftly planning their panicked move to Sweden or Paraguay or Paramus.

Never fear. When the dust settles in September most of us will have found a place where we're comfortable, and our kids will be the ones leading us back towards sanity. In the meantime, I reached out to Shelley  Kramer about doing a Kindergarten Summit at Play Kids. We should set something up in the next week for parents feeling like the above lady. I can try to bring an expert to answer Q's.

Will let you know. In the meantime, don't fret. Folks always find a place eventually, though I know if you only got an invitation to Jackie Robinson you're probably feeling a bit loopy.

....and at least, last year, most of all the LGCS wait list was offered a seat. Hold tight, parents, it'll work out.
