Hi crystal,

I think it would be really difficult for a child to start Kindergarten in the middle of the year (January).  They learn so much in the first months of school (both socially and academically).  I think your daughter would feel really behind and uncomfortable if she was in a class of kids who had a routine and skills that she didn't have.  She might end up feeling overwhelmed.  A big goal of kindergarten is helping kids develop a love of school and I don't think that would happen for a child who starts mid stream.

It's odd to me that her preschool operates on a calendar year instead of an academic calendar.  Could you speak with the teachers there to get their ideas?  If everyone is in the same position you are, they must have suggestions for what to do with your child from January - Sept.
