MOST HELPFUL POSTS
Where I live, a child has to turn 5 before December 1st in order to start Kindergarten. So if your daughter has a birthday IN December, then she should be in 1st grade right now. It's different for every state though. Here's a website I found that shows the age cut-offs for each state (when a child has to turn 5 by in order to start Kindergarten).

In Ontario your child should be in grade 2. Im confused why you dont know what grade your child should be in? According to Ontario, she should of been in school at the most 4 years already, at the least 2 years (legally 2 years, jr and Kindergraden isnt manitory here, but grade 1 and 2 are). If your child isnt in school yet, you need to get them into it.
I was always the youngest in the class and I hated it. When I graduated I was 17 and most of the rest of the class was 18 already. PLUS, my birthday is in July so while everyone else got "Happy Birthday" sung to them during the school year, I remained the youngest and never got any cupcakes just for me lol Booo hoooooo! I had to go to summer school in between 5th and 6th grade and I remember being really excited because I'd get the whole Happy Birthday thing....but instead, they just had one great big happy birthday thing for all the kids who had summer birthdays. Jipped again! LOL

in cali our school starts in aug. and ends june. and if ur daughter was 7 she would be in 2nd grade and probably be one of hte oldest kids because shes a baby born after the new school year. my brother was always the oldest(his b-day is in sept)

It really depends on the state. In WI the cutoff is Sept. 1. So my October 2004 baby is in Kindergarden this year and your child would be in first. Check with the school your child will be attending. If he/she has attended school somewhere else, many places will test for the skills your child has and recommend placement based on skill instead of age.
I'm in Alberta, Canada, and when I was in school, as long as you turned 6 before the end of January, you could start grade 1 in September. so she would be in grade 2 then... but some people have already posted links to more info on that. if you're not sure, you could contact your school board?
This page has a 2010 copyright so it's probably more accurate and has more details per each state. Like, I just learned that even though the cutoff for my state (NY) is December 1st for Kindergarten, the state of NY doesn't require kindergarten in order to start 1st grade.....hmmmm, interesting. Anywho, here's the page:

At my daughter's school, a child has to turn 5 before January 1st in order to start kindergarten. So here she could be in grade 2. My daughter was born Dec. 2004, but she wasn't ready for kindergarten last year, so I waited a year to enroll her.
