I can remember when I was in Kindergarten and I had a hard time making friends. There was one girl in the class that I was friends with, and I remember I got jealous when this other girl would try to play with us. I was basically an only child. I had an older sister but she didn't live with us and we rarely saw each other. She is probably looking for that friend that she will always have, can talk to, ect. Have you tried talking to her and asking if she is lonely or if she is shy to make new friends? Or perhaps the girls her age are excluding her?
