How old was your child when you got them into Pre-school? My son is 3 and 1/2 and I am just wondering if its too early to get him into preschool and if I should wait until next year.

  • it depends, we didn't put DS into preschool till the year before K, so it would depend IMO when he will go to kindergarten

  • None of mine went to preschool. I suppose 3 is fine.

  • I am also going through the same situation right now. My son is 3.5 and is his birthday is in january so I cant get him signed up for Head Start. He goes to a Home Day care but he is pretty smart already. I want him to go the preschool to be able to learn more but I can't afford day care and preschool.

  • Mine were all 3. They went to 2 years of preschool, and it definitely helped having school experience prior to kindergarten. Plus they really enjoyed it.

  • My youngest turned 3 in March and will be starting in September. He's the youngest of my kids to start, the rest were 4. I have no idea how it will go though, he's excited but not sure how he'll handle being away from mommy & daddy for a couple hours a week!
