I just dropped my 4 year old DS off for his first day of "official" preschool, and I was a little emotional about it when I got to work. My coworker was really surprised that I put him in a real preschool and couldn't figure out why one would do that. I had no idea that preschool was "controversial," so I thought I would bring the discussion here. How many of you plan on doing preschool for your kids?
DS has been in daycare up until now, and I just felt like he needed a bit more structure, and there is a great private school near us that has a great preschool program. For SAHMs, do you plan on doing some kind of "school" for your kids before kindergarten? For WMs, do you plan on transitioning from a nanny/daycare to actual preschool at some point? Just curious to see the different opinions on this topic.
