I've never heard of free preschool. Even here headstart told me they run $200/week. Public school is about 150/month private preschools are about 100-200/week

Yes.

Here in TX, the only people who get free preschool are low income, Spanish speakers, military, or homeless :/

It sucks when you're none of those and would like to.

Not for public but you have to qualify for it. Dd did because her father is active military. Ds wont qualify so we will have to pay for private pre k

Here prek is free for all 4 year olds although they do give priority to low income. We also have headstart that is just for low income.

We homeschool....but the Headstart here is free if you qualify to get in... You have to be low income or your child has to have diagnosed disabilities.
