Anand's birthday is at the end of September, so he just missed the cut-off for starting kindergarten this year. By the time we thought about petitioning to have him start early, it turned out to be months after the deadline (February-ish). It's just as well, I think -- he's still high-energy and restless enough that I think preschool, with its hours of large motor play inside and out, and looser schedule overall, is probably a better fit for him. I'm a little worried that Anand will get bored, but since Kevin and I work from home so much, we do have some flexibility in whether we send him to school on any given day, so can pull him out occasionally for other activities if he seems really bored with it.
We'll see -- I also think a little boredom is good for the soul; it opens the door to creativity. :-)
