My daughter is currently 4. She'll turn 5 next 9-28-13. The cut off for normal enrollment in to K is Sept 1 (students must be 5 by Sept 1). I can apply for early admission for her to go next year. Or she'll need to wait until 2014 (by which time she'll almost be 6).
One of the benefits from my POV is a serious reduction in the amount of Childcare costs we're currently paying. I honestly think, intellectually, she'd be ready for kindergarten NOW (ask Buford. She's a smart kid). She knows everything that would be required. I have heard that many don't recommend early admission for children into pre-k. But I don't know anyone who's been in this position with their children.
So, after all the rambling, what would be a drawback to having her go to kindergarten a "year" early (even though she misses the "cutoff" by only 28 days)?
