Had the same dilemna last year. When my kid took the entrance exam for this school, it was supposed to be for nursery. My kid was 5 then turning 6 on november. Sabi ko super late na for a nursery which is usuallY mga 4 year olds. But anyway pinagexam ko pa din then the result recommended my kid na mag grade 1 na. I was so surprised. Kung years spent lang ang paguusapan i could have jumped right into it but then I know hindi pa ready ang kid ko so I said I-kinder muna. Now he is 6 turning 7 and mag grade 1 na sya. I have friends na nauna ako ng few months manganak sa kanila pero grade 2 na kids nila this school year. Hindi ako nanghihinayang sa 1 year na sana na save. Mas importante saken ang readiness ng bata.

Sa akin naman my son will be turning 6 this July. Ginawa namin nung 4yrs old ang son ko nagnursery siya and after nursery enroll namin siya for summer classes for K1 so nung 5yrs old siya nasa K2 na siya.  For preparation niya sa Grade 1 he is currently tutored 1hour every day monday to friday at home. puro TV kasi siya ngayong bakasyon baka makalimutan nya studies nya and at the same time review na rin nya for entrance exam sa new school niya

Sa case ng daughter ko, naiwan sya sa Prep (she is 6). Mga kaklase nya nag-Grade 1 na. So I feel bad.

Pero ang bottomline naman, if kaya na ng anak mag-Grade 1 for his/her age. Some schools prefer na marunong na mag-read yung bata para I-accept sa Grade 1 (wow).

Naisip ko na lang pagpasok nya sa Grade 1, mas me advantage na sya sa mga kaklase nya. Sana mas breezy sa kanya kasi nagkaron naman sya ng extra year to learn some stuff na ituturo pa lang sa Grade 1 na-discuss na nila sa Prep :)

Hay! Grateful for this thread!  It dilemma ko ngayon with my twin girls who are both incoming grade 1 at OB Montessori. They're just 5.6 months by June this SY.

They both graduated from Advanced Casa (Prep for traditional term, K for K-12) last March.  Pero, sila ang youngest in their class.  I've raised an issue with the teachers and asked paano kung may incoming students from other schools (usually preschools) and they graduated as Prep/K and and age nila ay usually 6.10 (or some are almost 7 by June).  Alam ko kaya ng twins ko, pero mas may edge ang older kids both physically and mentally na dinedevelop palang ng mga 5 year old kids vs. almost 7 YO kids.

Medyo, at lost ako and enrollment na.  I have this dilemma kung i-homeschool sila for a year tapos Grade 1 for next SY since 6.6 YO palang sila by then.

What do you think, mommies? Ano ba ang cut-ff dates ng mga schools ng mga kiddos ninyo for incoming Grade 1, now that K-12 is implemented?  Big schools kasi that I've asked, like DLSU-Z, Ateneo, Miriam are using 5.8 for Prep/K and 6.8 for Grade 1.

^as far as i know, entry level now for Ateneo is grade 1. Before kasi Kinder. But because of the whole K-12, Kinder became grade 1.

La Salle Greenhils: student must be 4.6 yo for Kinder and 5.6 yo for grade 1. This is the reason why we ended up enrolling our son to LSGH cause since he is November-born, he'll miss the cutoff  for grade 1 by 1 mo. He'll get to enter grade 1 at LSGH in 2016, while in Ateneo 2017. Although I really prefer that he goes to my alma mater. Siguro sa college na lang.

Saint Pedro Poveda College: I think they have the same cutoff as Ateneo for grade 1. But they offer Kindergarten.

For me your best gauge is your kid. It happened to me. My son started schooling at 4. I enrolled him for Nursery but on the first day of class he was transferred to Kinder because of his age daw. 6 by June. Sana hindi na nila pina enroll sa Nursery in the first place. Nadoble pa bayad ko sa books. Nagpa tutor sya para daw makahabol. I saw how he was losing interest in going to that school. It's a traditional school they have 9 books and 30-40 items per subject sa exam.

My mother in law who is a teacher told me once na iba iba ang phasing ng bata. Kahit na ipatutor ko sya hindi ko sya mapipilit. Mataas naman grades nya. Pero he dreaded going there. Made me realize na i should have been firmed and let him stay sa Nursery. Or better yet should have enrolled him in a Progressive school.

Kaya this school year I transferred him na.

^ Hello Mommy...

We have exactly the same situation. We made a mistake in enrolling our son to this Catholic School (daw) when we first moved in Makati. And then , we later found out that hindi lang kami ang nagrereklamo sa school na ito. Puro sila activities (donation dito, need to pay this, that at kung ano ano pa).

Now, we decided to transfer him to another schoo. We found a good school howver we had problems because of the K-12.

My son is turning 6 this August and nag start na naman siya mag tutor this summer. Kasi naman, very playful pa ang anak ko and most of the time, tamad mag aral. :( May mood swings narin siya :(

Pero sabi ng Guidance e kung hindi daw siya maging Grade 1 e mapapagalitan sila ng DepEd because of his age.

Nung nagpa assess kami last week, hindi siya nakapasa kasi hindi pa siya magaling magbasa and magsulat. Ang gusto kasi nila para makapasa daw ng Grade 1 e marunong na magbasa ng Paragraph. Grabe! Ang alam ko during my time, I learned how to read ng ganung kahaba Grade 2 na ako. hehe

I felt bad because kailangan daw talaga Grade 1 na siya this coming schoo year.

Any thoughts on this? Im worried na baka mapagod siya and lalo mawalan ng gana sa school.

Pero sabi bg Guidance, ngayon lang naman daw yan mahirap sa bata. Kapag daw kasi nag Prep parin siya e siya din daw ang kawaa kasi mas matanda siya sa mga kaklase niya. Kung baga e maiilang daw siya., :(

I don't know what to do anymore. :( In 3 weeks e pasukan na and we need to decide na..

Help po... :( Thank you.

actually sis, lahat halos lahat ng school ang parameter para maging grade 1 ay marunong ng magread. Actually it's really hard talaga tangapin especially we knew that na mga kids pa sila pero sobrang taas ng parameter for their age. I will be transferring son to a new school, he already graduated from prep but since he is having hard time reading we already anticipated na baka parepeat sa kanya ang prep sa new school nya.

^ Sabi as per Deped daw basta 6 na ang bata by October e Grade 1 na siya. We asked yung Guidance and Principal If ibabalik ba yung bata sa Prep kapag hindi pa nakahabol sa ibang classmates. Hindi naman daw.

But they recommend na tuloy tuloy parin ang tutor para makahabol sa ibang classmates na marunong na.

And basehan daw ngayon e hindi lang sa kung marunong na mag read e. Sa age daw talaga. :( Ang gulo ng k-12 na yan.

I remember my own entrance exam for Grade 1 noon (di pa uso nun Grade 1 na 6 years old. 7 dapat talaga), pinagbasa din ako. Mabilis na ko magbasa so pasado ako ---- pero I remember it very well, pati yung itsura ng pages na pinapabasa sa kin, wala pa naman paragraphs.

Pero siguro kasi they're taking into consideration din yung bagong generation na talaga namang fast learners? Ewan ko ba, but at the back of my mind, parang feeling ko the K-12 curriculum (or at least on how some schools implement it) is 'hurrying' the kids into learning things, instead of them mastering the skills first before mag-move on. :(

My 6 year-old is going through the natural progression sa school nya, so Senior Kinder sya this year. Most of the relatives and kapitbahays her age are moving on to grade 1 na. I realized na keri lang - no matter sino mauna sa kanila lahat - at the end of the day, what matters is how each kid learns and how each kid develops. :)

Na admit na for grade 1 ang kid ko but we were asked na continue ang tutor for reading..I agreed that they considered the age..I hope may son will enjoy and cope with his new school.yun previous Nya na stressed sya sa curriculum ...
