My eldest was about two weeks away from cut of age for school. As she was quite smart the preschool suggested we start her. So we did she was one of the youngest in her class. However she did really well in all areas. Until she got to yr 4. Then as hormones start in some girls n kids seemed to change as she was almost a year younger than most in class she started to struggle socially. We ended up repeating her and teachers giving her extra work to keep her interested. Best thing we did she is now doing really well at school socially. Wish we had waited that extra year in the beginning.
