Re: Summer b-days and kindergarten

DS's birthday is August 27th. He started Kindergarten literally when he was 5 years old and 1 day.

We were planning on waiting to start him, but I know my kid. He was ready. He was reading already, knew all numbers from 1-100, but more importantly, was (is) very mature for his age. He's now been in Kindergarten for 5 months and he's reading at a 2nd grade level and is a leader in his class. His teacher adores him and he is thriving. He has not had one single behavioral issue.

My last child's birthday is at the end of July. Will we start him when he's 5, or will we wait? We're not sure - we're open to either option. We'll evaluate whether or not we think he's ready when the time comes.
