My four year old daughter is not enrolled in the junior kindergarten class at the public school. My husband and I thoroughly discussed the pros and cons of the program and came to a mutual decision. School starts in 2 weeks and the reaction we are getting from members of the community is starting to annoy us. (small town, only one school) I am starting to become quite short with the inquiries. She is my child and I feel that kingergarten is adequate in preparing her for grade school. I don't believe she needs to go to JK to get ready for kindergarten to get ready for grade 1. (Junior Kindergarten is still a new concept here and this year will be its third year) We have our daughter involved in several activities and socialization with other children is not a concern. Has anyone else experienced the JK/Kindergarten decision?
