    #1 started a little after turning 4
    #2 never went
    #3 started a couple months after turning 5 and only went for 1/2 a year
    #4 started at 3 1/2 and only because she wanted to go to school like her older brother and sisters. I was going to wait until this fall when she was 4 1/2 to send her

    I was running an at home preschool when my son was 4 so he did preschool with me and started Kindergarten right at age 5. My daughter's birthday falls in the middle of the school year so she started preschool the week after she turned 5 and didn't start kindergarten until almost 6.

    Also wanted to add... As far as I know, at least in my state, your child has to be at least 4 years of age to enroll in a licensed preschool. Otherwise it's just daycare.

    My son went to 4yr old class for April and May last year, just to get his feet wet, and he was 4 yrs 8 mths.  He is in 5yr old class now.  He will turn 6 at the end of August and start K this fall.  The preschool he attends has 3yr old classes, too - it is not a daycare.
