My daughter will be 4 this june, and i was hoping to get her into a preschool. I know nothing about this process, how to find a good one, how much they cost, do they all have waiting lists and if so will she even be able to go? Anyway, i would appreciate any information, especially about the cost.
Thanks so much, hil

It really depends on where you live. Here in AZ we usually do enrollment at the end of February beginning of March. Some schools have a waiting list and some don't. We paid $100 for two days a week from 9 to 12. This year we paid $130 for three days a week. This school was on the lower end for price but has been wonderful and also is very small.

My son will turn 4 July 30 and will attend Pre-School for FREE!!!!
I live in IL (Suburbs) and most of school offer pre-school for FREE!!! Unless there at daycare where there is a charge. He will attend Mon- Fri from 8 am-2pm. My youngest son who is 2 will still attend daycare until he turn 3 and then off to pre- school.
Right Now, I pay $168 a month for BOTH of them and that includes meals etc

To Mother that ask "why the push for pre-school"
It not a push. Surly, most mother's would like to home. Trust of matter is MOST OF US CAN'T AFFORD TO. I believe that even if your children's attend school/daycare/home day care as a PARENT you should still be home teaching your child.
Children need to be around other kids and it healthy as well. Other's kids shouldn't just included brother's & sister's

Are you talking pre-school or daycare? Pre-school should be free with the public school system in your city or town. And they will get a better education because they are state regulated. But it's really not necessary. Take the time to teach them and they will enter kindergarten reading on a second grade level.
As for the being around other kids there are tons of other ways for them to socialize other then sticking them into a daycare or pre-school. Dance, gymnastics, Karate, the park.
