Preschool or Kindergarten? - Page 2

I know its been awhile, but I wanted to share that we did enroll our son in kindergarten after all. We truly had a hard time with the decision and all of your thoughts and shared experiences were really helpful.
We found an academic summer camp program that will give him some classroom practice and we'll continue working on skills so he's ready. Thanks again!

My son started kindergarten this year with no preschool experience. He received speech at home at the age of two, but was quite uncooperative when it came to "table work". He turned 5 a month after starting kindergarten. He was the only child in the room that didn't know how to write his numbers and letters. We really agonized about preschool but in the end he was better supported in kindergarten (he needs speech & OT). He has thrived and is closing the gap on his day care/preschool prepared classmates beautifully. He is the youngest by far~ all of the other kids turned 6 this year. Our school is outstanding BTW. Anyway this was our experience. Best wishes, it will be great.
