  • Um. Basically they have to be potty trained. Maybe colors, count to five, those kinds of things.
    I waited until my kids were four before sending them to pre-k. Also, in most states, if not all, kids have to be up to date on all their vaccinations, or the school won't let them be enrolled. Other than that, it's pre k, where they learn to get along with other kids their own age, learn to follow rules, write their name, stuff like that. Pre k gets them ready for kindergarten.
    Don't worry mom, they don't expect anything too outrageous. And if they do, find another school.

  • Not at the preschool my kids went to through our park district. They only had to be potty trained and at least 3 years old before the school year started. What's the point of preschool if you teach them all the stuff before they start?
    My son didn't even go to preschool. He went straight to kindergarten at 5 1/2 and the only requirement to get into the kindergarten at our school was that you be 5 by the beginning of August.
