We moved to San Jose, California a few years ago. My wife announced that she was pregnant with our first child not too long after we had our new house in order just the way we wanted it. It is a good thing we bought a three bedroom home as our first child actually turned out to be twin girls. With no family on this side of the country to help us, the first year was tough with work and the babies. Now we are privileged to send them to a preschool in San Jose that is very nurturing and also provides academic and physical learning and training opportunities.
We wanted so much more than just a babysitter. We wanted an environment where our little girls could have fun, learn and be very active too. Our few experiences with babysitters when the girls started walking was that the sitters did all they could to get the kids to sit still, sleep or otherwise be inactive. We want them to move, explore, learn and get stronger and healthier.
