Re: Should my DD start school??
When I was teaching kindergarten, we suggested parents look to a triangle with equal emphasis on each corner to determine whether their child was ready. The 3 corners were; academic, development (fine motor skills/gross motor skills), and social maturity.
I've never heard a parent say they wished they would have sent their child a year early, but have heard many parents say they were glad they waited a year. To be fair though- most of those parents were parents of little boys.
If your instincts say your daughter isn't ready, I would totally second the suggestion of finding a pre-K program!
