  • Depends on the local programs that churches offer. At my church - as young as 2 start preschool 1 to 2 days a week.
    The average though is 3 years old 2 to 3 days a week.

  • Some kids can start when they are 3, but I believe that they have to be potty trained.

  • That depends on where you live and the age of the child.
    I have friends in Jersey, their daughter started school at age 4. Its the way their school system works. It's pre-school, but you go just like everyone else take the bus and it's paid for by the city or state.
    In New Hampshire, they start school at age 6 in the first grade and you have to pay for Kindergarten if you want your child to go and they are all private.

  • Unless you qualify for a head start program - you have to pay for private preschool.

  • @twinsplus2more, not always. There are many many cities and towns that have pre-schools that are paid for by the state or town and there are no income requirements.
