Hi meenal,

Deciding when to have a child start preschool is tricky for many families.  It's not mandatory, but teachers and research studies agree that kids who have some formal preschool are a lot more prepared for kindergarten than those who don't.  Deciding whether to send her at 2.9 really comes down to whether or not you feel like she's ready for some time away from you, whether or not you can find a program you really like with a schedule that works for your family, and whether or not you can afford to send her.  Both of my sons really benefitted from having time a way from me and from being with lots of other kids when they were that age.  Maybe you could explain to your husband why you believe your daughter should go?

Here's an article I think is really good about what to look for in a preschool:  http://www.education.com/reference/article/Ref_10_Signs_Great/

Good luck and please let us know what you decide,
