Should my son start Kindergarten or Jr. Kindergarten?
Academically from what I’ve read he knows all that he should know by start of Kindergarten so I’m not concerned in that area. He is able to feed himself, washes his hands without being asked, can get dressed and put on his shoes without assistance. He cleans up his toys without being asked and can hold a pencil correctly and use real scissors without assistance, cutting in a straight line. He can write his own name and recognizes it by glance or someone spelling it out. He knows his first and last name, address, phone number and even the State he lives in. He also knows my name, his sister’s and Dad’s names.
Since he’s never been in school (preschool or otherwise) should I send him to a Jr. Kindergarten program first and start him in Kinder at 6 years old even though he’s capable of all I’ve written above? Is it wise to give him some exposure first going 3 days a week in Jr.K?
