We stopped going to church a couple years ago. DH didn't want to go and it was difficult to get DD to sit still and be quite, so I slowly just gave up. I would love to go back but DH refuses to go (long story...he has God issues) and Sunday is his sleep in day (may seem stupid/selfish/etc of him, but trust me...he truly needs it, so I don't fight it). So DD is 4 right now and I am wondering if she is old enough for Catechism...that way they'll at least take her during some of Mass and I will get a bit of a break...?
Here we have the Catechism of Good Shepard Class. They start at 3. They teach the children what is happening in Mass at their level. They simple prayers some of the Allelujah and such. They also take then on a couple of " Field Trips" to the Sanctuary to show them up close what things are. It Helps so much. As they learn the children get involvedin the Mass, but you have to take her. Also RE classes here are between the Masses. BTW I've been in your shoes My DH also went through a time like this. Keep praying and going yourself. You need the Strength of the Eucharist right now. Also just politely invite him every week. Hopefully he will start again one Mass at a time.

It depends on the church some will have classes for preschoolers during mass, actual Catechism starts in first grade at my church.
