My 5 year old is a young 5 and is struggling in all day Kindergarten academically. My older boys always did well but he's developmentally young. His teacher even said it's too early to tell but there's a chance he may need to repeat Kindergarten. I'd feel really badly if that happens....He really needed an extra year of preschool but we couldn't afford the $600/month this year. I left the conference feeing depressed....although I know all kids catch up eventually.
