Alaska Mom Posted July 29, 2008 Share Posted July 29, 2008 Is it better to start my dd in K at 5 or 6, her birthday is late August, so she'll be on the young side or the old side - which is better? People have told me in the younger years it doesn't matter so much, but in the high school years it is better to be older in your grade level - that the extra year of maturity will go a long way in dealing with peers (in public school probably more so). Alot of kids we know her age waited on K until this year. I started my dd5 last year with K because she's very smart but she still really wanted to just play, so I really bailed on academics with her. I'm just re-thinking it now - repeat K or move on to 1st? Thanks for your help! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
