Hi Aswathy,

It is likely that the schools will decide which is the best grade for your son.  Often they do not like to have children who are considerably older than the others in their class, as they can both physically and educationally find it tougher to adjust.  If you feel your son is not mature enough for school next April, you can of course keep him out of school – legally he does not need to attend until the year in which he is turning 6 – but you would then need to agree with the school that he should enter at KG1 to which they do not have to agree.  They may feel that by this stage he is confident enough to join KG2 and that he should be able to catch up quickly.
