Preschool is definitely a luxury, but I’m not the only one who believes in the power of a few hours of school for little kids. In his 2013 State of the Union address, President Obama called for an expansion of preschool programs across the United States, proposing government programs that would subsidize the cost of preschool for families 200% or more below the poverty line.
I’m a firm believer in the institution of preschool. Both of my kids have had the opportunity to go to great preschools, and it has helped them develop socially and prepare for kindergarten. However, despite its benefits, preschool can also be painfully expensive. When you add preschool tuition on top of all of the other activities your kids participate in each month, it can get seriously pricey.
