Lol, I believe so. I used to think it was useful until I saw the before and after of kids going there. My bios will not be attending, but to each their own.

no, I don't think so.  Pre-K is a way for kids to get acclimated to a school setting and prepare for kindergarten.  Many kids need to get used to a schedule and new rules that come along with being in a classroom setting.

Hell no. My daughter eats lunch there, attends all day, in the same building with all the other kids. I do not pay. They actually learn there.

 I feel it is. And this is my reasoning for it. My son is three and I was super excited to put him in school this year. however when looking in my city I found that all the places offer it from 9 to 5 monday thru friday.  prek 4 is three days a week. with them only being there 4 hours a day. the curriculum is mainly for arts and crafts and socializing at prek 3 but at prek 4 they are participating in math,reading, and more school orientedthings. altho i really wanted him to go this year I opted out until next year. He goes to playgroups three to four days a week. he dont need to learn social skills especially at 350 bucks a week.
