So DH and I have been tossing around the idea of only sending DD to one year of preschool. If we don't send her we will put the money we would have spent on that first year into her college account, probably 5-6 thousand dollars. Looking ahead, we will probably not have enough money to fully pay our children's college expenses, just help out significantly. But our guess is they will still have to take out loans to cover some of it.
I should also add that DD just missed the cut-off for school by 6 days, so she will be the oldest in her class. Basically 6 when she starts Kindergarten, 7 when she starts First Grade, etc.
How important is two years of preschool do you think? Is it better put toward college? Thoughts?
