Hello! In general, schools enroll kindergarten students according to the school district's age rule. However, there may be very, very rare instances when a child may be accepted early if s/he may be identified as gifted. Your child will be given a test or a series of tests/observations. Often this is accompanied by pre-school and/or physician recommendations. Please understand that this is very rare and exceptions are generally not acceptable. Don't feel bad if your child just missed the cut off date because maturity seems to make a difference in kindergarten. The older students seem to do better. There are also many enriching activities your little one can be engaged in during this pre-kindergarten year such as art, swimming, dance, sports, and other activities provided by local recreation centers, libraries and museums. Have fun and good luck!!
