The child must be 5 before the cut off date to start school that year.

Elementary school here in Italy starts for 6 years-old children. Of course your child can be taken care of even before that by special institutes.

I think kids should go to some kind of school at age 3, definately by age 4 (pre-K) because it helps them get use to going to school and being a routine. It also helps them build social skills. I cannot imagine being a kid and not going to some kind of schooling at age 4 and then being forced into an all day routine in Kindergarten.

I think that is to young, we have school for 3 year olds, but it is not mandatory. If you want to send them you can. Is it mandatory there? You don't have to go to school here until you are 5.
