  • We pay for my daughter to go to a private pre-school. I think (but I might be wrong) there are public preschool's that you can get help with here in the state I live in.

  • I don't yet but if there are no other programs available we will.

  • I sent my daughter to a private preschool starting at age 2 (she did two 4 hour days at 2, three 4 hour days at 3, and five 4 hour days at 4). The price was based on how many days/week she went - it was roughly $100/day. I will be doing the same for my son.
    The only public preschools available here in NC are Head Start, which you have to qualify for income wise and we don't.

  • We don't send ours to preschool at all (homeschoolers) but if I did I would pay. The local public preschools don't measure up,IMO.

  • No. I will not pay for them to go to preschool. My daughter does lots of work here at home, is ahead of the preschoolers that she would be in a class with and does kindergarten work already... not pre-K, kindergarten. I feel the whole preschool, k-4, k-5, pre-k stuff is a bit too much.
