Do I Hold My Son Back to Get into the Immersion Program?

Dear Dr. Gupta,
I need some advice.
As a multiracial/multicultural family it’s important that my children speak English, Spanish (which I am teaching them) and Korean.
My daughter is in Korean/English dual language program at our local school. My son didn’t get in last year (lottery system) as an entering kinder nor did he get in for entering first grade. However there is a spot in Kinder but this would mean he stay behind in kinder while his friends move on to first. Hubby says no, just have him move to first and we’ll figure out a way to teach him Korean. I say yes, have him remain in Kinder. He is a May birthday and on the smaller side.
