Re: Is Preschool too soon?
At 3 years old, I started my son in a class that was 3 days a week, 2 hours a day. It wasn't a class where the kids had to sit in desks and do work. They would sit in a circle and learn songs, the teacher would read books, the kids would do simple science projects and crafts. He didn't really learn a lot acedemically, but he learned how to follow instructions, take turns, and share with other kids (he's an only child). Now he is 4, so I have enrolled him in a Kindergarten Readiness program that teaches ABCs, numbers. writing, etc. He doesn't start for another month so I'm not sure how structured it is. I'm glad I had him go through the first type of class because now I don't have to worry about him being the kid that gets yelled at by the teacher for not following directions (well, I can only hope).
