Re: Summer b-days and kindergarten
I have a July child (now 4th grade). I debated long and hard about sending him. His preschool teacher told me he was ready, he did the kindy screening, and they also said he was ready (and we discussed that he could always repeat kindy, if we wanted), so we sent him. He was ready, he loves school, still, 4 years later. Our school is small, and his class sizes are small, and there are several boys with summer birthdays (his age and a few weeks to a month younger). For him, for us, it was a perfect decision. He's in with a great group of kids, and I honestly can't imagine him anywhere else.
