Did you go to preschool as a kid?

I never went to preschool as a kid but these days it seems like most kids do go to some kind of preschool. Did you go to preschool? How about your kids?

 I did go to preschool. My DS went and when DD is at that age she will go too.

I went to daycare until I started school, but I wouldn't call it preschool.

None of my kids went to preschool, we homeschool.

I didn't and was still in gifted classes. Our kids won't. I do a mini one at home. Our daycare offered it, but I became a SAHM again right before it started when we moved.

I did, but I only have 2 memories from it, and both are bad.  One little girl puked all over my brand new dress, and I screwed up the shopping thing at the holiday store they set up for us because I didn't ask the older kids that were assigned to help us, to help me.

My 4 year old has been in preschool since she was 2 1/2.  She's actually been in 3 different school's because of moves we've made for DH's job.  All three have been wonderful experiences.  She loves school.  The routine works very well for our family.  My 2 year old will go in November, 2 weeks before her third birthday (our state law).  She can't wait.

I did, mainly because my mom needed a babysitter.

I have a very clear memory of the tooth fairy coming to visit us there one day. When she left we all watched out the window so we could see her fly away, but instead she got in her little red corvette and drove off. I thought she was a total badass, lol.

My boys went to pre-k because they were SO excited to start school and I thought it would help them get used to it. They loved it. I don't know if the girls will go or not.

I went to day care that had a preschool curriculum. My siblings all went to an actual preschool. My son went to preschool and my youngest will go also when he gets old enough.

I did...or at least tried...the year before kindergarten.  I only lasted about half of the year because I refused to get up and going in the morning so my Mom stopped trying at some point!  Both of my boys did 2 years of preschool starting at age 3 (2 mornings the first year and then 3 & 4 days the second year).  They went because I wanted them in a fun school environment and to be around other kids before they had to start kindergarten (I was not and am not a "playdate" kind of mom).  They loved it and so did I!

I didn't go to preschool. All 3 of my kids did but their preschool was within the day care center they attended.
