DD has a September birthday and until now the cut-off in our state was Sept 30. They passed a new law after school started this year that moves the cut-off to Aug. 31st for 2013-2014 school year and Aug 15 for the following years. Because the law was passed after the school year started she is in a pre-k 4 class this year and most of her class is going to K in the fall.
preschool as well as 2 others I have called will start following the new
cut-off day for the 2013-2014 school year. That makes her eligible for
pre-k4 again and they are not allowing those with Sept birthdays to be
in the pre-k5 class(which is for children who being red-shirted). I
understand following the new date but I feel like those who have already
done prek4 and have a Sept birthday should be allowed to be in prek5.
question...would you put your child back in a prek4 program? If so,
would you stay at the same school or find a new preschool? My other
option would be to keep her at home and just work with her at home(I am a SAHM). She
takes gymnastics, goes to children's church, and would go to library
story time. All of those are without me.
