    We are going through the early entrance process at a public school we hope will be a good fit for DD4. How much information should I include on these forms. Usually I am pretty guarded about how much I share in everyday life. There are a lot of questions about her development and milestones and what she is like at home.

    I am also concerned about her current preschool discouraging this new school from accelerating her because they seem to be against acceleration and want us to stay at their school. Her current school needs to fill out a questionnaire as well.

    Does the new school know about the pre-school? I'd be tempted to say she's been at home and conveniently leave the rest out!
