Janet Burgess has a bright, three-year-old daughter, whose birthday is on September 11, so she must decide whether to enter her into full-time education this September a year early, or risk her becoming bored as one of the eldest in her class. Do feelings of being different have positive or negative effects in later life, she asks. And if children are old for their year, do they benefit from increased confidence and ability? Would people with direct experience please contact Mrs Burgess on 01352 707243 (work) or 01352 741745 (home).
