Danish Research Highlights Mental Health Benefits of Later School Start

IMG_6892Rebecca Adams, writing in The Huffington Post (Delaying Kindergarten Could Benefit Kids’ Mental Health) reports on new research from Denmark that is worth reading in the context of summer born children starting school in England.

Not because all summer born children should therefore wait until CSAge before starting school, but rather to demonstrate that there is research to support the fact it can be in the best interests of many.

Also worth noting is how this research looked at age 5 versus age 6 entry whereas in England parents are choosing between age 4 and age 5 entry with a curriculum that includes literacy, numeracy and testing from the outset… again, just food for thought.
