My daughter is 4 and she reads in Spanish, write her name and any word just be doing every letter sound (thought at home). Since every child is different, i think for some children its ok to be in Kindergarden at 4 years old.

At the age of 4 my daughter was able to write and spell her first name and three letter words.

No! Research have shown that kids brain are like a sponge between o-8 years. They absorb everything they see and hear. My daughter started at 2 and a half years in the caribbean (Trinidad), and she is an excellent listener/reader.

I am looking for a great elementary school for my Autistic child in Bakersfield, CA. Does anyone have suggestions or comments where to go or not go? Willing to move to different districts.

My daughter is 4 1/2 and I think that she is now ready for kindergarten but she isn't supposed to technically start until she's 5 1/2. I'm going to try to get her enrolled 1/2 way through this school year right after she turns 5 in February.

entirely depends on the child and rate of development and/or practice or learning habits. I was reading the paper at 4.

My question is what schools allow your child to enter kindergarten before the age of five, because I notice the school district are very strict, and these includes private and charter schools that they must be 5 by Dec. 5th

Age is a number! Some kids are socially and mentally ready, some aren't. Four is a good time to start deciding :)
