What age you starting to let your kid for nursery school or kindergarden? As we know, this can be anxiety inducing time for kids. What scares first-time schoolers the most and fear busting strategies for parents? Appreciate your suggestion or sharing your experience if you have any. Have a nice day!

I think,I will let my kids for school at 4 years.I learn about education psychology that kids at 0-24 months really need their mom.So,I would be her first teacher.At two-three years I have to prepare him to learn how to socializing.So,I think,that the age is right time to send him for school.

My eldest one started when she just turned three years old. The second at three and a half and the youngest at four. The good thing is that they loved their studies and strive to become the top of their class. I think it doesn't matter what age your child will start going to school. As long as they are willing and excited for school, then we can send them the earliest possible time.

My daughters started school at 4 years old. Although my oldest turned 5 2 weeks after she started. They opened a really nice preschool in our school for pre-k. My daughter learned so much from going there. Our middle one is in there now and I plan to send our son there in 2 years when he is old enough. It is scary how much more they expect kids to know before even getting into kindergarten.
