Good luck to all the little preppies who started this year!
My question is.. Has, or did anyone defer the start of prep so that your toddler will be (or is) 6 years when they start school...and how are you feeling about it having made that decision to defer their start of school?
My 4 year old just turned 5 in Jan has just started pre-prep and will therefore be 6 when starts prep. Her intelligence is up their with all the 5 year olds but does need to work on her maturity (lol, what 5 year old doesn't?!). It was mainly for her age and long term benefit later in school that helped with my decision to defer. I was very comfortable with that decision and still feel it is the right decision for her development... But now that she has started pre-prep she is the oldest one in her class and most won't turn 5 until towards end of year. I have now fleeting thoughts of doubt, but am still overall comfortable with this big decision.
Am really interested to hear from others who are doing or have made this decision to delay start of prep and how you're feeling about it, good and bad.
