How big is the average kindergartener? (worrying DD might be a little too little)
My DD is 5, she will be a month shy of 5 and a half when she starts kindergarten. Today, while visiting a shop that had the same toilet that the kindergarten rooms around my area has, DD wanted to go pee. She climbed up and tried to go, but fell in and scrapped her back and hurt her butt.
It instantly made me realize how tiny she really is. DD is 38 inches tall and 29 lbs. This, on top of being rather socially behind (we live in the middle of no where, with no neighbours, and I don't have a car, so she doesn't spend much time with other kids. Maybe 5 times a year) has me having major second thoughts about kindergarten this year.
If we don't do kinder this year, she will at least go to a half day preschool to ease into the transition. But, with her age and intelligence, I'm also uncertain with this.
So I am curious, what's the average size of a kindergartener? Did anyone with petite little ones have trouble in kindergarten due to size? Thanks!
