why is december the cut-off month for kindergarten?

what is the reason behind selecting december as the cut-off month for kindergarten? wouldn’t it make more sense if it was january? if they believe that december kids are too young to start school, i really don’t see a difference between november and december. they’re both in the same year! again, january would make more sense to me.

A cut off date is needed. Any cut off date is arbitrary. it is easier perhaps to compute a cut off date at the end of the year. You can simply eliminate all children born in the year prior without concerning yourself with the months.
