Answering whether your child is ready for kindergarten, is similar to answering whether your child is ready for preschool and by that I mean, is the family ready. Is the family ready for all the new challenges as far as a new school, new environment, new expectations from the school, distance that you travel. All those questions are important to ask. On top of that what you should know is once your child hits kindergarten, first grade and second grade, much less focus is put on social/emotional development and do much more is put on academia. And that's going to be the case for the rest of their schooling. So the longer you can keep your child in preschool, the better. Research shows that the more development a child has in social/emotional challenges and experiences, the stronger they get. That will lead to a stronger academic child as well. The more your child is confortable with themselves and all of these challenges, the better they will be at accomplishing new tasks in the future.
