Many parents have this situation due to varying cut-off dates. Many parents consider a private kindergarten program to appropriately challenge your child while offering you the choice of repeating k or going on to 1st. We use World Cup Kindergarten.

I agree, it depends on the child. My son will be five Aug.29 and he is undoubtedly ready for kindergarten. I don't want to keep him out a whole year. What am I to do?

According to the California Department of Education, five years old is the minimum age to enter kindergarten.
Indeed I have heard of stories in which some parents were allowed to enroll their kids in kinder at private schools, at the age of 4.

i think it completely depends on the maturity level of the child. my 4 year went to head start when she was 3 and knew all the things that are suggested that they know when they start kindergarten, and she is very mature for her age.

I think it depends on the child. My daughter will be 4 August and she's already been in Headstart and they said she has to go back to Headstart 2011-2012 school year beacause she's too young for kindergarten. She's not the average 3 year old.

I don't think so!Whether the kids go to kindergarten or not, it's depend on atmosphere of school, living town and the courage of trying to first step !!
