    Right now it's a good idea to homeschool them at that early age because what can they learn at such a young age and remember about the COVID-19, and the consequences.

    Talk to a school counsellor , teacher or have the child tested to see what will be expected of them. Keep in mind there is a emotional and fear issue involved. The school may not know about.  I came from a disfunctional  alcoholic home and as a result was held a year back to six and I am glad they did.. That disfunctional  shame base carries all through a persons life .  It all takes some thought on your behalf..    Grampa B

    Without Pre-School..............your child will NEVER get into Kindergarten

    Waiting till your child becomes 5 years old to put in school is way too late for your child. Usually, people put their kids in preschool at the age of 3 and this is a perfect age to start going preschool. At this age kids start developing their skills to learn the things that have been told to them. They start recognizing the things & require proper educational feeding which they will definitely get at preschool.

    You can refer the Amberlay's Curriculum(https://www.amberlay.com/our-program/) to know more about it. You can teach your kids the basic educational things at home but he/she will miss all other things like interacting with other kids, participating in various activities & competitions, expressing themselves in front of others, etc.

    normally a kid nowadays needs about two years of preschool before kindergarten, unless the kid is homeschooled in preschool to learn to count, learn colors, learn shapes, learn phonics, learn ideas like plants, places and animals.

    Kids usually start preschool at 3, Pre-K at 4, and Kindergarten at 5 atleast here in the USA.

    5 is the normal age to start school. Before that its nursery school or childcare.

    Five is fine, but you’re the parent.

    Read to your child, whatever you choose.

    Isn't that the normal age to start Kindergarten? Not all kids go to preschool.
