Kindergarten Early Entry Experiences?
January 24, 2009
We UrbanMamas have debated the pros/cons of early entry to kindergarten already. I'm looking for some actual stories from mamas about the early entry process. Portland Public Schools says that the process is still under review for this year. Let's assume nothing will change. I'd really like to know what the psychologist assessment was like. Did you child score well enough to qualify for early entry? Did your child mind the assessment? Does anyone know how many kids actually qualify through testing vs. how many don't make the cut? Do you have opinions on which psychologists are good for this assessment and who we should stay away from? Did you end up placing your child in kindergarten "early" and how has that been? Any regrets? Anybody out there wish that they had done early entry? Thanks in advance for stories!
