I have a 4 1/2 year old and a 3 1/2 year old. They are about 10 1/2 months apart in age. My oldest has a July 7th birthday and I was thinking of sending her to Kindergaren this fall. My worry is that she will probably be the youngest in her class. I do not want my 2 daughters in the same grade together. I think that would be too much competition between them. My concern is that if I send my daughter to kindergarten and sometime in the future she starts falling behind that she may have to repeat a grade and then my daughters will be in the same grade. I'm not sure if I want to hold her back because she is already very tall for her age. Everyone thinks that she is 5 or 6 yrs old when they see her for the first time. She is the tallest in her preschool class right now. Does anyone have any suggestions?
