  • Generally 3 and potty trained, but a lot depends on the school policy and the child himself.

  • My daughter will be 2 in May and is starting preschool in September...Honestly I wouldn't be putting her in so early if it wasn't for the fact that my mom is the teacher I wouldn't put her in so young but its only 3 days a week for 3 hrs..they do take ages 2-4.
