  • No, my kids did not go to preschool. The majority of schools around us are daycares and they will only take kids for 6-8 hours a day, everyday. I became a SAHM because my income did not cover daycare if needed(luckily DH makes enough for me to be able to stay home). The few true preschools didn't speak English as the main language(Spanish or Arabic, neither of which my DD or DS has been exposed to yet) or are strongly culture based in a culture I am not comfort sending a child to. My DD will be going to kindergarten this fall and the school told me that many of the student start with no formal schooling before.
    That is not to say she knows nothing. She knows her letters, number and can spell and recognize her name and her brother's name. Among other things.

  • We tried to get our older daughter into head start but because we did not live in the low income housing area she was denied (even though we met the income requirements, we just didn't live in the right area). After that we opted to do preschool at home. When our younger daughter was old enough she did preschool at home too. Both of our kids were well ahead of their head start counterparts once they hit kindergarten. We were so glad we opted to take care of preschool on our own.

  • Yes. All 3 of my older kids went to a private preschool, my 2 yo starts in the fall, and my 9 month old will start when she's 2.
