Is 3 years too young to start preschool or head start?

My son was in nursery until he was about 3 1/2 and then they moved him up to the younger pre-school class. In his school pre-school gues until you are about 5 and then they get moved to Kindergarten. He is there full time 5 days per week. I would have to say that when he turned about 3 1/2 is when he really started making friends. Its pretty neat to watch them socialize and interact with their classmates and teachers. He really a learning a lot, has lots of creative hands on art time and even learning foreign languages.....I would say go for it.

It's not to young. We are waiting to start our daughter at 4 in preschool because she doesn't make the kindergarten cut off date she will start that at 6. We will be starting her in The Little Gym in the fall which will give her the needed social interaction for the next 2 years before preschool. We will also do story time at Barnes and Noble.

No they go and be creative and make friends 2-3 days a week for 3-4 hours. My daughter will start this next school year.

My son went to 2 day preschool this year. He was 3 years and 4 months when he started. It was through our ECFE program (early childhood family education). One day I went with him (30 mins spent in the classroom with him and the rest of the time was a parent education class) and the second day I dropped him off. It was perfect for him.

Its up to the individual child if they are ready or not. Is your child home with you fulltime?
