We've had nannies, babysitters, grandparents, etc. bring kids to our group. I think the only concern is making sure the person bringing the child knows the rules of the group.

Generally if I don't like someone's recommendation, I say "that didn't work for us."

Yeah, it seems like you'd have to take the same kid and compare his/her success in PS vs HS. Otherwise, you might just be looking at a difference between children. And you definitely don't want to...

My 8yo DS likes to write comics. I've seen lots of other kids his age enjoy this too. I think it's a nice to bridge into other types of writing.
