I know Prek traditionally means 4..but how many teach 3 and 2 year olds..
I think of myself as teaching Preschool rather than preK...In my mind, I just think of PreK being children that will attend K the following year...I teach a class of 3.5-5 yr olds and a class of 2-3.5 year olds.
I teach an integrated preschool program with 3-5 year olds. They are both special and general education students.
I am in the "older 3's" room; however, by this time of year almost all are 4. My kids stay with me from Sep-Aug, regardless of when they turn 4.
I work for a State Preschool Program. The children I work with are 3 to 5. How ever we can only have a certain percentage of children that are 3. Ones that will continue on with us the following year.

Mine are generally 3,4, and 5, although in the three's class they only have to be 3 by Dec 1 so I do have a few that are still 2 in the beginning. And a few of my 5's are older 5's (turn 5 before Dec 1 for instance but mom is holding them out of K for whatever reason).
My youngest kid turned 3 on Sept. 15th, my oldest turned 4 near the end of October. So slightly over half my class is 4, the rest are 3. I keep them all year from the end of Aug. through the following August.
i teach a state pre-k program, they have to be 4 by Sept. 1st. Most of them have already turned five.
Our center is set up like this; Infant room, Toddler 1 is one year olds to 18 months. Toddler 2 is 18 months to 2 and toddler 3 is 2 year olds to 3's. After that they start our Preschool program. I have preschool 3 (must be 3 by end of september and totally potty trained to come to my room), the next room is preschool 4 (must be 4 by the end of September). After that we have Pre-K which is typically the younger 4's who won't turn 5 in time to start kindergarten, and then we have a kindergarten program--they have to be 5 before the end of September to start the kindergarten program. it is a full day program with no nap time.
I teach in a public school preschool program. My kiddos had to be 3 by Sept 1. Most of my class is 4 at this point though.
We have 6 rooms. Baby ducks which is 6 weeks to about 10 months or so? Baby ducks 2 is from the end of baby ducks to 18 months. Yellow ducks is 18 months to 30 months. My room is 30 to 36 months. The next room is the 3's room, and then the 4's room. Some of the kids in the 4's room also attend the upk held at our center. To get into the 3's room the students must be at least in pull ups, and to get into the 4's room the student must be completely potty trained.

I teach in the preschool 1 room of our center. I have 3-4 year olds. We transition the children after they turn 4 into the preschool 2 room 4-5 year olds. I have a couple of children that are still in pull ups but have to be potty trained before they are moved to pre 2.
Of course exceptions are made for children with special needs or health issues.
