My girls start kindergarten next year and we are registering for it today. I am hoping to keep them in the same class, but the principle has a policy of separating twins. I have written a letter explaining why I think they need to stay together. They are in preschool together right now in the school. I do not see why they would be kept together for preschool but separated for kindergarten. Preschool is 3 hours long. Kindergarten is a full 8 hour day. I think the amount of time at school is going to be a big enough change that they do not need to have separation added to it. The teacher they have now tells me how well they do and they are not attached at the hip. They play with the other kids they just need the security of seeing their sister is there. Anyone had any success in changing a principles mind on separating twins? How did you do it?Answer Question

I have identical twin girls and their school gave me a choice about keeping them together or placing them in separate classes. I choose to have them split up and it was a great thing for them. It helped them be their own person and have their own friends. They also tend to be very distracted by each other so I saw that being a problem. People also have a very hard time telling them apart and I didn't want that to be an issue. I do think it should be the parent's choice however, they know their children best.
