Is she getting socialized enough though? You don't want to risk her being one of the uncool socially awkward ones once she starts real school. That can ruin someone's whole social school career.
When Ree was at camp she would come home so cranky because it wore her out. She is very outgoing but I don't think spending four hours in preschool is necessary this year. Next Sept I will likely enroll her since the following year she will be in Kindergarten. The gym I go to is very family oriented and she can stay up to two hours per day (she loves it!) while I work out.
Ree is our last child so I really want to spend as much time with her as I can while of course still giving her the socialization she needs. I am also planning on enrolling her in dance/music class since she is very outgoing.
I will still think about it over the weekend, but I am leaning towards putting preschool on hold. Of course I still would love to hear everyone's opinion on the subject.

I'm pro-preschool if it's good. I went to preschool and when I graduated high school probably 50% of the people who graduated in the top 5% were people I went to preschool with, which is saying something for a class of ~1000. Obviously it wasn't all due to preschool but I generally was friends with the people I knew from pre-school up until I was almost out of high school (same classes, etc.).
