Preschool vs No Preschool

I think preschool is very important. Not to teach kids to count,abc's and all that but to teach them social skill, to teach them to be away from their parents, to be a little more independent. I will send both my girls to preschool. Myla starts this year in the fall and I am so excited, scared and nervous. Technically the way my girls bday's fall they could be in the same grade but Myla couldn't start school till this year cause her birth date falls the day after cut off, so I'll hold Zayla back a year. A lot of people don't understand why I'm doing this but I feel that all they know is each other. I want them to have their own friends and learn to do things on their own instead of always depending on each other for everything.

    I think its important also. I found out my daughter has a speech problem because she is in preschool. To me she is fine. But they say other wise. I agree that it helps with social skills. My daughter had no social interaction with her own age group before she started preschool. I see a huge difference in her attitude now too. We'll besides from her wanting to act like a baby.... But she is trying to be like her brother... She learned how to be nice without mom telling her to.. Yay!!
      preschool has literally been life changing for my family. My oldest will graduate from preschool in two weeks (she goes 3 hrs a day, 5 days a week) and it has been a tremendous year if growth and development. It's not so much the academics, because we actively worked with her and she really entered preschool knowing what she needed to know by the years end, but socially it has been invaluable. She has amazingly teachers and I think it is going to make her transition into kindergarten so much smoother simply because she already knows how school works and what to expect. I had no idea how much growing she would do this year, and how much it is needed at this age level. Preschool was amazing!
