Hi Sleuth,

I'm not sure going to school early really helps the children learn better in the long run. Learning your ABCs at school or at home makes no difference. But I started my daughter in playgroup so early because she doesn't get to play or even be with kids her age very often. I'm a stay-at-home mom and she is V-E-R-Y attached to me.

She is definitely learning at school - hand-eye coordination, lining up, sharing toys, social interaction, etc. These are subtle things, but she is learning them. The college thing is a bit too early for me to think about.
