Duh. These are the wise words of Nicole Imprescia, who is suing her elite Upper East Side preschool for not adequately preparing her 4-year-old for elementary school exams that obviously are a gateway drug to college admissions.
Better start coming up with some kind of Ponzi scheme to shell out $19K a year so your child can start her private school education — and feeling of rich self-entitlement — at the nimble age of 4.
But even that might not shield you from catastrophic nursery failures, as poor Imprescia learned. Your far superior toddler may be dumped into one playroom with the practically public school-educated 2-and-3-year-olds. Worse, she may be forced to spend her time learning about sophomoric “shapes and colors.” [NYP]
