Pardon my ignorance - I am a foreigner not really familiar with US school system. We moved to Houston and are looking for a kindergarten for our 2 y.o. daughter. I looked up greatschools.org (great site, by the way) and it seems to be covering 'preschools' - is our girl qualified to go there or she is too young? If she is too young - is there another website like greatschools.org which covers kindergartens? Where I could compare their levels, pricing etc.?
A child in the US starts kindergarten (elementary school) when they are 5 or 6 years of age. Pre-school programs are typically for the 3 yr old (2 days/ week, 1/2 days) and 4 yr olds (3 days/week,1/2days). If you enroll your child in a day care with an academic environment, that might be different and your child may get a little more academics/socialization learning. Check out Montassori schools for preschools as well. Kindergartens are part of the formal school of elementary schools that is why you don't see a separate catagory for them. Good luck. By the way, in my opinion, a two year old best learns by being home with mom or another consistent care-giver. You can do A LOT with them at home by just playing. That is how they learn. There are also lots of mommy/toddler day activities you can participate in the community. 75659
