Some mothers on other groups have said they are going to "skip" school until first grade because their children already know ABCs, 123s, and colors. They get social time with other kids at parks and playgroups. Their claims are that there isn't enough education and it's all fluff, so why send them? Is there more to it than that, though? Are these early classes getting kids ready for future acedemic careers or is it just a cheaper daycare where there is nothing beyond socializing?
