  • Most preschools here require the child be potty trained to enter, so the common age is really three. I personally did not want to push it on my child I have two, one is a teenager the other just turned three. I wanted to enjoy my last as this is my last time I will ever have this opportunity. I prefer doing preschooling myself, and plan to put her in a preschool when she is four.

  • the youngest is 3. My mom is a preschool director and she takes them as young as 3 as long as they are potty trained.

  • We wait until three, but only send them a couple days a week.

    My now 3 year old will start going 4 days a week next school year (he'll be 3 1/2) and the following year he'll start UPK with the school district as will my now 2 year old. (birthday cut offs are weird youngest two will be in the same grade)

    There are several preschools in our area which will take untrained 3 year olds.

  • I think my son's daycare considers pre-school the 4-5 year old room. It looks more like a classroom, with the stuff on the wall (there are no desks), and they have a curriculum. I'm not sure what the 3-4 year old classroom is though ... pre-pre-preschool?? LOL.
