I did not go to preschool.
My SO did not go to preschool.
I didn't send my daughter to preschool. Although I taught her myself. The first week of kindergarden she came home with reading books. I could not believe she was reading. I know I took initiative and taught her but did not expect such fast results!

I did not go to preschool, I don't think DH did.  But when we were little, going to preschool was a lot less common.

I did send my oldest to preschool, and my younger son is in it.  But I agree that its not strictly necessary.  I sent my older son more so he'd get used to separating & listening to his teacher before he started K.  He likely would have been fine, but I do think it was good for him to go.

I did not go to preschool. There were only two in my town...headstart or an expensive one that only took a few kids. I did great in school, bored with the work at times, and had no social issues even though I was an only child.

I'm a SAHM and I choose to only send them to preschool the year before kindergarten, mainly for socialization. I work with them a lot at home and we get out for playdates, library, music, etc.  Most everyone around here sends their kids to preschool at 2, 3, 4, but I don't feel it's necessary for us.
