Jan Baby - Attend JK Early?
My little one is a January baby. We are considering schooling options for her. We are open to both public and private schools. One of my questions as of late is whether she should go to school a year ahead. This, of course, is contingent on whether we have this option in Ontario (I can't seem to get a clear answer to this).
She appears to be ahead of her peers (or the other children her age that I've had the chance to observe). Examples include the ability to sight read, hitting cognitive milestones much earlier than peers, etc. Without belabouring the point, she's very bright and seems to be on par with children 2 years older than her in some specific areas (language, math skills, behaviour/maturity, etc.). Everyone who meets her is surprised at her age (despite her small frame).
I wondered, would be to her advantage to start formal schooling a year ahead?
Does anyone have experience sending their child a year ahead?
