i want to test in my dd for kindergarten early

She moved up to preschool early and now is in pre K she has always been "top of the class" i'm not bragging or saying my dd is a genius just that she is slightly advanced and just misses the cut off for kindergarten so i'd like to test her in so that she continues to be challenged. 

Ok so do any of you mama's know the requirements? We are in NJ she turned 4 Nov. Do you know the process or what steps i need to take to have her tested into kindergarten early?

lol i think some of you misunderstood me...my fault sorry...i want her to start next September not like in the middle of the year now or anything......

 Why are you rushing her through school?  What's your goal?

I personally wouldn't do that. It isn't just academics but maturity levels too. It may not be a big deal in Kindergarten but that fact that she is a year younger will start to become more and more noticeable as she gets older. It won't hurt her to wait until she is suppose to go to Kindergarten.

I'm guessing cheap daycare, sorry that has to be the only reason.

How can you be "top of the class" in Pre K? Seriously now, come on.

 There are programs for gifted children that will challenge them at their grade level, so again, what's the rush?
