La La tells HollyBaby.com exclusively that ‘it’s kind of crazy’ how competitive schools are in NYC. ‘I interviewed tons of schools,’ she admits!
In New York City it’s no secret that it’s very hard to get children into highly sought after private schools. Parents fight to get into the likes of Horace Mann, Collegiate School and The Buckley School years before their kids are even at the age to attend. VH1’s La La’s Full Court Life star La La Vazquez knows this better than anybody. She tells HollyBaby.com exclusively that she had a tough time selecting to where to send her 4-year-old son Kiyan!
“It is kind of crazy but I interviewed tons of schools,” La La, 32, admitted to us on Oct. 1 at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City, N.J. “I picked the one I thought was best. You just have to be a parent and get out there and talk to the schools, talk to the teachers, really decide what you want for your child and I think I found a good fit.”
La La, her 27-year-old basketball hubby Carmelo Anthony and little Kiyan moved to NYC in the Spring of 2011 after Carmelo was traded from the Denver Nuggets to the New York Knicks. Since then, La La’s been trying to get used to her raising her son in NYC.
“It’s hard in the city because there’s not a lot of just grassy areas to just let him run around and play,” she explained. “But you find your cool spots. Central Park is awesome. Children’s museums, museum of natural history — you find cool places for him to have a good time and he’s starting school now so he’s occupied there as well.”
Aww! Well best of luck to little Kiyan as he begins his studies in NYC!
