My ds is 3 he will be 4 mid November. He is dying to go to school but I keep telling him he is too young. But honestly I'm not familiar with when kids actually start school. He is very bright and loves learning. He is very friendly but doesn't get to be around kids his own age very often. So when do kids typically start kindergarten or preschool?

Pre-K - 4
Kindergarten- 5

This is for my city, state. My 3 yr old is starting Pre-K this year but that's only because his birthday is in September.

DS will be 6 in October and he's starting Kindergarten next week.  He missed the Sept. 1 cutoff so he's older than a lot of the kids.

Where I live you have to be age 5 the day school begins.

As far as preschool, you could enroll him now, if he loves to learn he will enjoy it!

We started dd1 in pre-k at 3. Dd2 really wants to go to school now as well but we're going to wait one more year to start her in pre-k3 as well.

My kids start private preschool when they're turning 3. They go 2 days a week for 3 hours each day.

Depends on location.

Here they must be 5 by December 31st. Some have earlier cut off dates.

What city are you from? I could find your curt off date for you. You don't have to say your city if you don't want, I understand.

Preschool is 2.5-3 here when some kids start.

My kids went to preschool the september they were 4 and kindergarten the september they were 5.

so if he was my child he would go not this september, but next.
