Hi, I live in NYC and just recently learned of the Gifted and Talented program. I dont really know much about it at all actually, but it seemed to catch my eye. I do think my daughter (age 4) is pretty smart for her age and I get told a lot by strangers as well. I just wanted some more info on it and if anyone has has a good or bad experience. What are the pros and cons. Thanks in advance!

I can't say, because I've never been involved, but "gifted and talented" is much more than just "smart for her age". For instance, is she so extremely far advanced in an area of think or an area of talent that she stands out, by a lot, from her peers?
