I honestly don't know. I do think it is an individual thing. Some kids are good with starting at an earlier age and some do better at a latter age.
Without pressure from anyone? 7 or 8.
I don't really know. My autistic son is 11 year old and it took me couple months to get him into homeschooling. I am not sure if it will work if I started when he was younger. He doesn't have that focus yet. The answer is obviously I don't know =)

Immediately after the baby stage. Montessori and Waldorf inspired play learning. Eventually progressing into a classical style of education.

It totally depends on the child, each child is truly unique. My DD was ready at 4, my special needs son not until 7. When learning is forced before they are ready it will just hold them back.
