My son is just gone 4 this week. He did a 3 year old program last year (half day) as well as 2-3 days a week at montessori daycare - they do a school day for the 3-6 year olds. He will be in Kindy next year (which is 3 days 8.30-3pm)
As a result he has been doing a lot of phonics, can do basic maths, can write his own name, cut along lines etc.
I am a bit confused as to what to do this year, as I have to balance work and school (DH is FIFO).
Is doing 3 school days plus one daycare day going to be too much? My work is flexible, but by the time I drop him, then drop dd at daycare i'm going to be lucky to work 5 hours a day! - So ideally I'd like to work one full day (currently work 2 full days)
Also is he going to get bored with the kindy program, if he is already beginning to read and do maths and stuff at the daycare? Its an IB school if that makes any difference.
What kind of things do you look for if you were to suggest a child is ready/not ready?
