I have a friend whose son doesn't turn five until September 30. Today was his first day of kindergarten. I, of course, didn't know about it until a few minutes ago! hmy: I'm just so surprised that she put him in kinder so early, and that a program would take him when he will still be four for another month and a half. He is still very, very immature and I don't think he's ready for kindergarten. I asked why he wasn't put in pre-k, and she said he already was. I know for some amount of time he was in preschool there, only a couple days a week. I don't know... but based on what I've seen he isn't ready for kindergarten. But what can I say..... I think I already told her how I felt about it last year, so she probably didn't tell me until now because she didn't want to hear it! Last year she also told me that she just couldn't wait for him to be in school full time so she wouldn't have to worry about day care. Yeah, great reason to put your kid in school so early. When he's turning 5, his friends will be turning six, and it will be like that all through his school years. :unsure: It's a private kindergarten program through Tutor time. I don't know much about it but I was looking it up online. Next year he'll be going into a first grade as a five year old. I am really feeling for his teachers..
