Questions about tot school...

I'm really wanting to do more structured schoolwork with DD, as much as is feasible for her age. She's bright and I already feel like I'm not challenging her enough with the playing and reading we do.

Am I rushing it?  Maybe I'm already doing enough.  I recognize that she's really young,  but I don't want to hold her back either. 

What does pre-k look like for a 3ish year old? Any advice? TIA!

    We do some printouts and lessons already and I would like to make it more formal when he turns 3. DS loves it though, I would just try adding more tot school activities in and if she enjoys it great, if not then you don't have to push it.

  •  DS is pretty close in age to your daughter and we do a lot of informal stuff at this point.  He does keep asking me how to read though so I may start working on more letter sounds/phonics with him sooner than I thought I would.
