    Pre School is the year or less before Kindergarten . . Period!
    I'm mostly of the same opinion, even though my grandkids all were enrolled at age 3, because the parents feel compelled by the norm.

    While some kids take longer to potty train and it's not their fault, I still think an institution should be able to limit attendance/enrollment to those that don't have an excessive number of accidents.

    In my case, my autistic child needed pre-school at that age, but I otherwise agree.

    There is a big push for kids to be in pre-school at the age of 3 and up so that they won't be "behind" in traditional school. They are now teaching things in Kindergarten that I was taught at the end of first grade, and there are things that kids have to know to enter Kindergarten now that kids used to learn in 1st grade.

    Today's double income families don't seem to have time to teach their kids the basics, another reason why pre-school is a must in this day and age.

    I do agree, though, idealistically 3 years old should be "at home with Mommy" time - playing with other kids their age - except they're all in pre-school now.

    Just goes to show you how ignorant those who read the news to you really are . . "Anchor" is an abbreviation of "Dumber than an old iron ANCHOR" . .

    Maybe Charlie might need to get a used car. The new car smell could be the problem.

    It's called "Method Acting" . . Where you have to have "Lived" the part.

    Charlie's just doing homework and it got the best of him . .

    Check it out . . What the Hell is an "Undecillion"?

    The new pool, which has technically been ready since 1999, has so many IP addresses that most non-mathematicians probably don't even know the number exists -- 340 undecillion.

    I think it is a young Reptilian, or maybe a member of the Klingon family.
