Pre-K starts in my town when they are 3yrs old. My 2 1/2 yr old daughter can't wait to go to school (she hasn't figured out that once you start there's no stopping LOL!) and ride the bus (she doesn't know that she will NOT be riding the bus yet). She loves to read, learn, and meet new people, so she's ready for school. My 2 yr old doesn't know what school is, could care less about meeting new people, but she does love to learn things. They will both be 3 by the time school starts next year, so they will both be going. It's not a requirement that they go, but in our town, if they don't go to pre-k they seem to be behind when they enter Kindergarten.
