Young 5s - start K or delay
Our daughter will turn 5 in August and start K a few weeks later. I know it's a long way off yet but she really doesn't seem ready (has trouble sitting, following instructions, can't/won't hold a pencil, etc). I know that public K is not play-based which is disappointing and hard to understand (didn't K used to be more play?!) We are in Berkeley schools so I understand that delay means that she would start 1st grade and not K so she would miss all of that limited hand-holding from K. What have other families in Berkeley with young fives done? Homeschool? Private? Sink or swim in public?
