Hi!!! I wanted to see how you all would handle this situation that I am in. If you have some words of wisdom I would gladly accept any and all suggestions!!!
I have a young girl who is acadmemically advanced. She is of age to be in our Pre-K classroom this Fall. Her parents would like her to be in our Jr. K classroom. Both classes head to kindergarten next year! BUT the Pre-K classroom focuses on the emotional needs of the younger 4-year-old child, whereas the Jr. K is more fast paced and advanced for our young 5's (they turn 5 in the school year).
My gut tells me that this child is not emotionally ready to be with students older than her.... What magical words do you have that I can pepper into my follow up email!!!
