It seems like yesterday, that my husband and I put our Son into his first school-like environment for the first time. He had just turned 2 years of age. Personally, I thought it was way too young for him to be heading out the door, and on the other hand my husband thought it was normal. Maybe that is the difference of me being Australian and him being a born and bred New Yorker. In Australia, the accepted age for children to go to school is 5 or 6. In New York City, it seems the sooner the better.
