Starting kindergarten is one of the biggest milestones in a child’s life.

You want your child to be socially, academically and physically prepared to start “big-kids” school.

Today’s World-Herald featured a story on how families and school districts are adjusting to the state’s new eligibility date for kindergarten enrollment.

The Nebraska Legislature in 2010 changed the date when kids were eligible to attend kindergarten from Oct. 15 to July 31, effective this fall. That means kids who turn 5 in August, September and early October this year will have to wait another year to start kindergarten in the public schools.

That’s unless kids who now find themselves past the cut off can test into kindergarten.

The intent of the change was to shrink the gap in ages — and, potentially, abilities — among the state’s kindergarten students.
