Should send them to daycare or preschool ?

What do I do ?? My just turned 4 year old twin boys are having separation issues . I am with them 24/7 . They have started a language class in Farsi on Saturday's with other children. My boys are the youngest in the group . When I leave they cry . I was taking classes myself in the same building as them . I had to stop because they can't be on their own. They just sat there and cried for me .So I have decided that I will stay in the class with them . Although will sit in the back and let the teacher teach while I read a book or something. Am I crazy to do this ?? If I don't , I must remove them because it is disrupting the rest of the class . This course is only offered on sat . It is their fathers language and they need to be around other children that speak the same language . I am a stay at home mom , I do activities with them everyday . they interact with kids on a daily basis . should I start thinking about putting them in pre-School now or wait ? Maybe start in the fall ? they will turn 5 late in November . This way they will have 1 full year of pre-school before they start kindergarten. I have always been a strong believer of children staying home with their mom for the first 5 years of their lives . Back in the day our parents never had pre-school and they turned out well . I understand that some moms can't afford to stay at home and that's ok . i am just starting to second guess myself !!! These are my first's and I want only the best for them HELP !!!

I would definitely do preschool with them only for the fact that they are having seperation anxiety go to the school and explain the situation to the teacher ahead of time so she has a heads up and I am sure the interaction with the other children on a more consistent basis will help them with this.
