Harvest moon, I understand your frustration... Are you aware that Kindergarten is not like what it was when we were there? It is not a transition like it used to be it is full on. Come here, sit down, write this, colour this, you want to play blocks instead of colouring in? Well I'm sorry but colouring in is what we are doing now. When you are in Kindergarten there are limited choices...very limited.
However, with the less structured environment of preschool or day care...if the kids want to play blocks or whatever, there is far more opportunity. How do I know...I'm a teacher AND I too kept my DD back until the year she turned 6.

I sent DS the year later and I'm so glad I did. He has come so far in the last 12 months. There are a number of young kinders this year at our school and generally they are the ones with more behavioural issues and struggling with the work. That doesn't mean every early starter is like that. Some handle it really well. But lots of kids go to early imo
