Hi, new to the site!
I have 6 years old triplets, 2 girls and 1 boy, and they started kindergarten this year. Yes we waited until they turned 6 before they started. They were July babies and have no regrets about waiting a year. They were not mature enough at 5 for the pressures of school. They did attend a preschool two years before kindergarten and were together in the same class.
My question is about everyone's experience about whether to split them up or keep them in the same class together. I researched it on the internet but I wanted to hear some actual experiences. We were fortunate enough to have a school (in the system my husband teaches in) that allowed us to make that decision ourselves- which was to keep them together. The school system I work for would not have given us that option. So far it has been a good year with a great teacher. The kids love school and have enjoyed learning.
