Re: Summer b-days and kindergarten
Having been a kindergarten teacher, I wholeheartedly support waiting an extra year for summer birthdays.
My niece is an end of July birthday, just a couple of days before the cutoff. SIL's plan is to have her do the private school kindergarten at her current daycare facility, then either have her go to public school kindergarten the next year or, if she does exceptionally well, go straight to public school 1st grade.
