Preschool Question...I need your thoughts
OK I think this is a no brainer but want your opinions.
The state of Nebraska is changing the cut off date for Kindergarten to July 31st (as in you have to be 5 on or before July 31st to start Kindergarten) Lexi's birthday is August 1st.
HOWEVER, Lexi can start preschool this coming school year and we can then decide if we would like her to take an enterance exam to start Kindergarten at age 5 (2013/2014) OR have her repeat the preschool program and start Kindergarten when she's 6 (2014/2015)
Here's where it gets tricky....Lexi's BEST BEST friend will FOR SURE be starting Kindergarten the 2014/2015 school year when Lexi will be 6 (he'll be 5 and turn 6 in September) and DH is pretty adamant that Lexi goes to school with Cy.
I think that Lexi would be ready at age 5 but she will then be 17 when she graduates and just turn 18 when she starts college, not that it's bad she'll just be young.
OK, so now I'm rambling. ANYWAYS...what are your thoughts??? Send her to preschool or just wait????
