Here you can't send them until they turn 5.

In NY.... 4 is Pre-K, 5 in Kindergarten and 6 in 1st grade......depending on which month their birthday falls

Pre School would probaby be better for him

Many kids start K here at 4 years.
But if that's not the norm where you are I would not send him.

I would not because of his age. But that is just my experience I have 3 kids we put out oldest in k at the age of 4 and a half. I wish I would have waited

Plus I was a Jr. Before I was old enough to take drivers education. With all the sophs.

Quoting Anonymous: This. My mother always says she wishes she had waited another year to send me. I'd send him to preschool.



Quoting Anonymous: I was 4 when I started K. I did fine but....emotionally, I was a year behind. I'm sure this varies among children.
