my daughter will be 5 in august. technically can start kindergarten in the fall. she is in preschool now for another month. because she is on the younger side, i had initially decided to put her in pre k before kindergarten. well, with money tight we have opted against it. but i still dont want her to go to kindergarten in the fall (am i confusing you???)
anyway, what do you think about her just staying home the year before kindergarten? she was already in preschool, it'll be like her taking a year off. she knows all her letters/numbers/name writing, etc...do you think she will be ok if i just keep her home for this coming year and send her to kindergarten when she is 6?

If you feel your child is not ready then don't, but if you are holding her back just because, I don't think it's a good idea. Has she been tested yet? Go by those results. You can always buy workbooks and help her if you do keep her home. I buy mine at Wal-Mart.

If she can't get in school because she can't draw a human right I would find another school, lol. She is five. My son is seven and still draws stick people lol but does well with everything else.
