How important is preschool?

Do you ladies think preschool is important?

My son went to head start, which is a preschool based out of the public school system here. he absolutely loved it and I feel it was a great experience for him.

      I agree, I don't have children of my own but from being a nanny for many years and taking child/educational psychology courses I know that research suggests that preschool is a significant foundation for learning.

        I think it depends on the child and how naturally you teach that child. Formal preschool might not be for all children. We do some formal with workbooks and sit down activities but other things we teach more naturally in every day life. Counting can be taught numerous ways other than just sitting at a table, same with colors and shapes.
