I guess what I'm asking is when a child turn 3 do they automatically go to the preschool room? IMO it should be the September cut off date like in elementary school. Just because a child turns 5 in January doesnt mean they get to start going to kindergarten. In some cases some children would attend preschool for 3 years. If that teacher doesnt the same curriculum every year that would be 3 years of doing the same thing. Not to mention how hard it is to transition a younger 3 into your class in the middle of the year when the older 3s have learned the routine. What is your opinion?
