My DD started 3 year old preschool the week after she turned 3 (last March). There was an opening and they were looking to enroll, so it worked out great. The program was small, and she was the only girl with 8 boys who were almost 4 - she held her own quite well, and she is pretty smart.
Now she is 3.5 and in the new 3 year old session that started in Sept. I'm seeing how different it is between her and a lot of the kids that are barely 3. Her teacher said DD doesn't always pay attention during stuff like circle time. I'm wondering if she is bored? I guess I'm sort of asking, is it to be expected that there is such a big difference between 3-4? Would it be normal for a kid to get sort of bored towards the end of a program?
For example, my daughter knows her ABCs, upper and lowercase, inside and out.. she can count pretty well, she is even starting to spell out/read short words. But they of course really spend a lot of time drilling basic ABCs in school.. Any thoughts? I'm not saying the program is bad - just saying she has gone from the first half where she was challenged, and maybe not so much now.
