I was just wondering if anyone knows if it's truly possible to have a child born in late December start school on time, rather than a year late. My son is pretty smart, talks well, learns fast, etc. and I feel that if he is forced to wait a year longer, he'll be bored in school. I keep hearing that there's some sort of test a child can take to see if they're ready to start school on time. I know he'll have plenty of time in school and what not and that I probably shouldn't rush it, but I really feel like making him wait a year will cause more harm to his education than letting him start this year. Does anyone have any advice on this? I live in New York.
