Re: Kindgarten question - esp for moms with kids near cutoff date
The cutoff here is currently Dec 2. DD is a late Nov birthday (07), and I was leaning towards having her wait the extra year depending on how she fares in preschool and how she seems to be doing overall next spring/summer.
Now the state is making a transition over the next four years so that the cutoff date is more in line with other states. In 2012 it will be Nov. 1, in 2013 Oct.1, and 2014 Sept. 1. So unless I think DD really needs to go to K next year for some reason, I plan to abide by the cutoffs. They are also starting a new program called "transitional kindergarten" for children who miss the new cutoffs.
