I just found out that our 2 1/2 year old will not be allowed to start kindergarten until she is almost six because of when her birthday is. The cut off date is September 1st and she will not be 5 until October 3rd so she will have to wait until the following year to start. Do I push for early admittance or just let it play it self out? She will be starting preschool this fall but three years of it before kindergarten? I am worried kids will make fun of her for being older or think she has been held back. Is it too early to be stressing about this?
