    I went to preschool for two years.

    It was awesome and I learned a shit ton too, I have my records somewhere, perhaps I will dig them up.

    How many 5 year olds do you know? I have known a lot, and they don't really care at that point. Believe me, 5 is plenty early (and this is from someone who chose preschool for both my kids).

    Yes, I think it plays a important roll in emotional and social development.

    I was in 'real' school then, we start school at four and half here.

    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 command a gang of 100 5 year olds, they tell me what's up.

    Sure they don't care, they don't know what's going on. My only reason for proponing preschool is so they aren't socially lagging behind their peers.

    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.).

    Yo, there are a butt-load of studies that show how preschool correlates with a butt-load of positive things, and I do mean a butt-load.

    and you can't really argue against butt-loads.

    Just out of curiosity for those of you who are pro preschool, what are your thoughts on homeschooling?
