Has anyone put their child into Kindergarten a year early?
My son has just turned 3, and so technically does not qualify for kindy until 2014! But I feel he really needs more structured stimulation and learning than either I or his FDC can provide. He just seems to constantly be seeking new experiences and I can't provide enough for him.
Apparently some kindys can take kids a year earlier than they would otherwise. Has anyone got experience with this? I guess I'm worried it will be too advanced for him and he'll be left to his own devices a lot but I'm not really sure. I might pop along to chat to a few local kindys but I'd love another parent's opinion too...
For example he's really good at following instructions etc but he needs help wiping and putting his pants back on after going to the loo! He probably can't manage his own lunchbox either (i.e. he wouldn't know to save some stuff for later etc). Is this inappropriate for a kindy setting?? I just don't know what the right thing to do is.
