YES!!! I think its a HUGE advantage. I didn't think it really would be but but my son in pre-k because he wanted to go.... I am SOO glad I did! He's in kinder this year and is doing wonderful. I really feel bad for those kids that didn't go anywhere before kinder. They're behind and don't understand the rules and have a hard time adjusting to the daily routine of the school day. I end up staying most of the morning just helping some of them b/c the teacher cant deal with 5 upset children when she has 20 in her class. In short... if you can do it... then put your child in pre-k. Most public schools offer it or there's always private ones. GL!

I put my son in preschool because he is an only child and I was a SAHM and his kindergarten was full day. It was better for both of us to ease into the separation by going 1/2 day 2 days a week the first year of preschool and 1/2 day 3 days a week the second year. The socialization was also good for him even though he had cousins close in age learning to get along in large groups was easier in preschool than it would have been if he just went to kindergarten.
