Should my children be sent into kindergarten as early as possible?

Extracts from this document...


?Should my child be sent into kindergarten as early as possible?? I believe that each and every parent must have questioned and wavered over this. For many parents, the decision to send their children to kindergarten can be a daunting one. On one hand, stay-at-home mums prefer to spend a few more years with their children as they think that shuffling kids off their childhood is inappropriate.

In this case, it is actually barely for me to decide whether the advantages of sending young children to kindergarten is outweigh the disadvantages or otherwise. After getting clear of its advantages and disadvantages, it is ultimately up to the parents to decide whether or not to send their 3 years old child to kindergarten. However, personally, I hope that parents will wake up and say ?no? of hurrying their children through kindergarten. ...read more.
