Age for home preschool

How old should a child be to begin home preschool?

Jill: A good time to start is age three or two years before the child begins school. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t spend activity time with younger children. Reading to children should start when they are babies, and there should always be time spent in finger plays, painting, playing with play dough, etc. However, by age three, most children have a long enough attention span to appreciate and enjoy a more structured learning situation.
