  • Public preschool (early intervention) program or private program?

    Private programs quite often have something for as young as 2. Public preschool, they must be 4 by the state's date, per public school age law.

  • In most parts of the country, Pre K means Pre Kindergarten, so it's the year before Kindergarten, which is ages 4-5.
