I working mom and do not want my son to fall behind because of lack of $$ to pay for a prestigious pre-school. Your thoughts and advice would be a huge help.Answer Question
You don't need a "prestigious pre-school"... no one ever got rejected from Harvard b/c of their pre-school education, or lack there of!!

My Son started Preschool at 3. These days, I highly recommend it. There are children in his class that started at 2 years old. Even at 3 he had to catch up with learning circle time etc. He absolutely LOVES it and I am sending him again next September. Our Preschool summer camp is only for children 5 & over so I am going to be looking to see what else I can get him into for the summer since he is 4 now. So to answer your question, at least here in NY, children that go to preschool before kindergarten have an academic & social advantage over children who do not. I have seen it with my own eyes.
