It is different in all areas. Head start in our area is for low income people only, there really isn't a benefit unless the child is in a bad situation. Preschool and pre-k also varies per school an.d state. Don't send your child to school until they are ready. They do not read more quickly because you send them to school earlier. Read to your child at home, do other educational things at home if that is important to you.

Don't be in a rush, I always waited until my children were begging to go to school before I sent them. They enjoy school to this day. THey range from a high school senior to one starting kindergarten with many in between. All are advanced for their ages and have done very well. My oldest struggled with dyslexia and now has all AP classes and is applying to many colleges for next fall with several scholarship opportunities.
