My daughter won't be 5 at the start of kindergarten - she'll turn 5 two months after the start date. In my state - ohio - she legally CANNOT go to kindergarten at public school. She already has gone through preschool and has done testing to get into kindergarten since her whole class took the tests. she's testing above what some of her 5 year old classmates have tested. Her teachers say they keep forgetting she's the young one.
I was told you can home school for kindergarten at any age and then she could go right into first grade whenever she finished home schooled kindergarten curriculum. Does anyone have any information or good websites to help? I thought she had to turn 5 sometime during that school year to be in KG, not be 5 at the start or I probably wouldn't have put her in preschool. But she's in love with school now. I hate to hold her back when she's so eager to learn. Thoughts?
