Question for parents who have "redshirted" your child..
Has anyone here ever "Redshirted" your child. He currently goes to a Private school. We just had a meeting with our K4 teacher at DS school with the principle they think we should redshirt him and keep in back till he's 6 before he starts kindergarten. Actually the way his birthday falls he will be 6 1/2. We actually recently learned that the Public school system here is gonna start a Junior K, for those between K4 and Kindergarten. Anywas I was wondering have you done so?? How did it work out for you and your child? And how old was your child when they started Kindergarten
Update--I want to thank you all for your replies, it makes me feel better, because he is not at maturty to attend Kindergarden now plus with his slow development of gross and fine motor skills. And with all this wonderful advise it makes me feel better that those of you that have done so due to these same or similar problems with your own little angels, they benefited from holding them back in prek/k4 . You ladies are awesome! Thanks for your help!
