My 4 year old daughter will start kindergarten next year. I'm a little concerned because my mother-in-law takes care of my children during the day while I'm at work. She is in dance and gymnastics, so I'm not worried about her socially. I just hear about all the things children are learning in daycare and preschool these days, so I'm worried that she may feel like she's behind. We do work on somethings at home, such as learning to identify letters and numbers, writing her name, etc. She gets bored with it very easily or frustrated with herself if she can't do it the first or second try. Any suggestions or advice on what I can do to keep her interested in learning? Also, any advice on whether or not going to daycare or preschool will make a big difference academically?
