Pros and cons of 3 year old preschool

Message length 300 characters recommended

We started Henry in preschool when he was 3 years old. Since he's an only child and my in-laws watched him in our home for us, there weren't many socialization opportunities for him so that was a major pro in starting him at that age.

Henry also learned to listen to other adults who weren't family and follow a structured routine. The other pros were that he was taught his letters, numbers, colors, shapes, etc. He made a lot of friends and was constantly invited to birthday parties.

I suppose the cons of sending a 3 year old to preschool could include the lack of quality preschools, whether the child is unable to separate from their parents, and if the preschool tuition (if it's a private preschool) rate is too costly.

In our case, my husband and I were both working full time so we were able to afford the cost. It turned out that the preschool was worth every penny because Henry thrived in a structured environment.
