My daughter says she doesn’t like school because it’s boring. What should I do?

My daughter is 4 years old because she is a year behind in school because her b day is sept 6, 5 days after the cut off. In her school they start at 18 months she’s in pre-K 3 right now. Since she started pre k 2 she tells me that school is boring and when she started pre-K 3 this year (2XXX-XXXX) she tells me the same thing. What should I do?

    I’m in the same boat. My son will also be 5 a week or so after the cut off date so he will have to do pre-K all over again. Maybe talk to the teachers? I know that at his school they have a small group of kids that will have to do pre k again and they do different activities with those kids to make sure that they’re not going over the same material that they’ve already seen. Also for some reason instead of looking at it as just school, my kid really enjoys the thought of seeing his little friends. So as far as it being boring, I’ve never really had to even think of it. I’d definitely talk to the teachers about your concerns because that’s something that could be quite common. The cut off date stuff and having to do it once more. I think I’d also have a talk with my kiddo about it. I’d ask if he would like it better if he took the year off or if he’d rather go and just get a feel for what he wants. I’ll be following this because I am also curious about what the other options are. Good luck!

    I have tried and the other hard part is that I work at the school I’m the other pre-K 3 teacher
