I thought I had a little more time to figure all of this out, but DD has been begging to go to preschool for months now, so we started our hunt for a good school. We've narrowed it down to two, and we will be touring them on Thursday and hopefully registering her soon.

I'm quite anxious with how to deal with the non-vaxing stuff. DD is vaccinated to 12 months, and nothing else after that. I don't even know how to approach this with the school, or what to do.

Someone told me once that all I have to do is go to the health department and sign a form. Is that it? Should I ask the school what sort of paper work they need when we tour the facilities (I'm almost 100% what school we will be choosing. I'm just touring the other facility to humor DF. )

Help?

Is the preschool a totally private school? Does it receive state funding? If it is totally pivate they don't have to take an exemption. If they receive ANY funding from the state, they have to take the exemption. I'd find that out first. If they are state funded I would say nothing and just file the exemption. If they are not state funded, they you have a choice to say nothing, file the exemption and hope for the best, or ask before hand if they will except it. I'm inclined to just say nothing and file. The least amount of attention you draw to it the better I think. But you run the risk of them NOT accepting it and if you are not ok with that, you'll have to start over and find another preschool. If you ask up front and they don't accept them, then you haven't wasted any time or effort and can keep looking. Let us know how it turns out. Good luck!

PS if you do mention it, do not mention she is partially vaxed. It is irrelevant and none of their beezwax!

Luckily, Florida's public health laws regarding vaccinations require the same compliance for all schools, public and private, including preschools. You have to request a form from your county health department or your doctor's office. This site will tell you eveything you need to know in Florida:
