  • I am too old. But I think that the required age depends on the preschool. Traditionally, it is aged 3 to 5.

  • Funny answers but in depends on the school. The preschool at my kids' school is for 3 and 4 year olds. They have to be 3 before August 1 to go. The school my 3yo will go to has different age requirements for different classes. There is a morning class that is strictly for 4 and 5 year olds that is a little more demanding then the afternoon class which is for 3-5 year olds. They have to be 3 or 4 before the first day of class to attend and be potty trained. At the school my 6yo went to (through the park district like the one my 3yo will go to but at a different park) the teacher didn't offer a class for 3 year olds. They had to be 4 for both morning and afternoon classes.
    Traditionally preschool was for 4 year olds but most offer classes for 3 years and sometimes younger now.

  • Good grief some of you are just plain A****. Like you never have a damn typo.

    Check your area as some have different requirements. Here it is 3-5.

  • Around here, they have a program for 2 to 3 years olds where they don't require the child to be potty trained, but I think it is pretty expensive and more of a play school than pre school. Most other places start at 3 where it is required the child is potty trained.

  • I think for the most part the starting age is 3 until the child is old enough to attend kindergarten
