Hi everyone, I'm a total new mom to public school. I homeschooled my oldest for 2 yrs and he will now be starting at the PS and my youngest is old enough for Kindergarten but I'm having reservations about sending him.
He makes the cutoff by only 10 days, he's small for his age, and he's kind of immature (being the baby of the family and all). K is full day here. I'd really like for both of my kids to go to the same school and at least have the comfort of knowing they are together sort of.
So, I can just keep my youngest home with me for another year, send him to a part-time preschool, or go ahead and have him start K. We will likely be moving to another school zone next spring, so most of my family members are saying just to send him to K at this school and then again next year at the different school because he'll have different teachers and classmates.
What do you all think? Would doing 2 years of K be boring or hurt his self esteem? Or would it be a good way for him to transition? Anyone BTDT?
