    it actually depends on the school divison you live in. winnipeg school division it is free for halfdays, mon-fri, pembina trails school division it is only 1 half day a week...and free....you can call river east transcona school division for what they do in your division. Also, not all preschools require your child to be pottytrained. I know this as my son, who will be turning 2 in sept. (and not pottytrained) will be going to preschool in sept, tues and thurs mornings from 9-11:30. I will be paying for this though.

It's usually nice to go with the school nursery, as it gives the child a chance to socialize and make friends so when he enters Kindergarten the following year, he/she already has friends or will recognize familiar faces. And it's free.

    Although, I do know that there are also "Pre-School's" out there, where some start at 2.5 but require the child to be potty-trained. And most of the time, I believe they have fees to enroll your child. But then again, there might be some free ones.

    Never did nursery school because all it really is, is daycare - currently my son is at a subsidized daycare all day with kids ranging from 2-10yrs of age.

    He will be starting kindergarden this Sept, he will be 5yrs on Sept 27


    Pre-school is pretty much daycare - they can be enrolled anywhere from as young as 3 months - 6yrs of age

    Kindergarden - your child must be at least 5yrs of age by the end of that school year

    Nursery School - 2yrs - 5yrs of age (potty trained is dependant upon the place you go, but more than likely they should be potty trained or close to it)

    to learn more it is all online -
