  • I started mine in 2 day a week PS at age 3. Then Head start at 4. I was a stay at home mom and wanted him used to being away from me before he went to real school.

  • Both my boys went to preschool at age three. I wanted them to get the socialization because we had few friends at the time.

  • My 1st started preschool at 3 (5 days/week), my 2nd and 3rd started preschool at 2 (2 half days/week). None of them were potty trained at the time (my oldest is special needs, the younger 2 they worked on potty training at school). I am planning on both my 4th and 5th starting preschool 2 half days/week at age 2.

  • Preschool and started just 2 half days/week at 2.5 years. Now he is in pre-k 5days/week 9-12. At 2.5 years old he was not potty trained it was not required b/c it was private preschool. Now at 3-4 class he was potty trained and it was required. Preschool for us was the best decision we could have have ever made for our son.

  • My son did not go to pre-school, but went right to kindergarten this year.

  • Yes, my son was potty-trained before he went. It was a requirement and luckily, he was potty trained at 2.5, so, by age 3..he could go on his own and wipe too. He needed no outside help.

  • DD just started kindergarten. The only other thing she's done is dance class once a week for an hour since age 2.
