Hello..It is wonderful that your child is so advanced. You have discovered that not all nursery schools are academically oriented. Some are geared toward developing social skills and have lots of play time while others are much more academic. You have to decide what is best for your child. Also because children are all different and develop at different rates, as the parent you will have to keep her mentally stimulated and challenged in areas where the child care or school is lacking. Keep doing what you are doing. Your child will greatly benefit. It sounds like she is gifted if she keeps developing at that rate. However make sure she has ample play time as well.
