Turning 5 isn’t the only indicator your child is ready for school. Children grow and develop in all different ways, and on their own timeline.So if your child is school-age, consider these factors:
- Is she small for her age? You may consider talking to your child's doctor, or future school, about waiting a year.
- Is he socially immature? You may consider talking to your child's doctor, or future school, about waiting a year.
- Is she curious about the world around her and eager to know more? Your child may be ready for school.
- Is he eager to do things on his own to show his burgeoning independence? Your child may be ready for school.
