Yes, the expense is my worry. My other one started at 4. This preschool is only one day a week. I know the social aspect is good and that's why I want her in it, but as a single mom, I can't afford it grrrrr.

We had to put our daughter into a full-day pre-school/daycare program this September, when I started full-time language training with my DH (formerly a SAHD). Her class is for 2.5-3.5 year-olds and she's doing really well with it. Intellectually she's ahead of most of the kids, but the social aspect of it is really, really good for her. It's expensive!!!!!!!!!! but a good way for her to get started with school. She'll do this for about a year, then either pre-K or nursery school next fall when we move overseas.

i would love it if our school district had something for 2.5 yr olds that isn't at a daycare. i'm a sahm, so we don't need the daycare but my daughter is already more advanced than most of the children in the 3 yr old preschool program we have. she was even keeping up with my niece's young-5s (pre-k) class when we would visit. the 3yr 3 day a week preschool here is between $800-$1,200 for the entire year depending on which school is chosen. 4yr 5 day is free. i'm afraid my child will be bored when she finally does go to school next sept.

Well, our son has been going to an early childhood center since he was 6 months old (I'm a full-time secondary education teacher). He has just transitioned into the pre-school room. He's been ahead of the game for a while now, and was becoming very bored in the big toddler room (he started walking away when they were doing activities that he already knew how to do, or talking about things in circle time that he already was comfortable with). He is doing well, except not lying down for nap as well as he did before. He loves telling us about his day in the "big boy" room, and we get positive reports from his teacher.

How much do you pay for that and how many hours is it for the day? I asked at a school here and for 3 hours a day, 3 days a week it's $415... a month,which i thought was too much!!! what do you think?
