Hi-

 

Any insight would be most appreciated.  My daughter just turned 2 1/2 and her guide thinks she is ready for primary at 2 years and 9 months (the first they are allowed to go).  I'm not so sure.  She still has a few accidents and verbally just isn't there yet.  I love her guide, but I am wondering if she is getting pressure from the admins to make space in her classroom or something.  Anyway - anyone have any insight as to signs your child is ready to move up?  Thanks!

I'm not sure what the signs are but when we moved from a supposedly Montessori school into a real one this January they put my son into primary at 2 years & 5 months and he has just blossomed.

Thank you Neonalee!  That is helpful.  My DD was born 7/28/2010 so our DC are about the same age.  I guess I should trust them to know what they are doing.  She's my baby and seems so young to me.

Regarding accidents, it seems that they really do well following the behaviors of the older kids. Also Ds just had his first accident at the new school/older class and they handled it fine. At this young age they/teachers should be able to handle it without problems. We keep 3 sets of clean clothes there.

It's also good for them to see what the older kids do & stretch towards that. I bet she will be fine:)
