Hi. My son was born in November of '04 and I'm wondering about starting him in school next year. He goes to daycare a couple days a week where she does a structured preschool and he does a lot of things at home. He is already counting to 100 and can write his name and is starting to read. But he is the oldest and is a little shy and reserved socially. My question is, should I start him next year in a preK every day or put him in Kindergarten because he seems to be so far ahead in his skills? I am thinking he would benefit from a classroom structure every day before getting into Kindergarten since they make it so rigorous now. Also, if he starts Kindergarten next year, he will be one of the youngest in his class. I just wondered what other moms of this age group are doing?
