These days people start their kid in preschool at 3 or 4. NOT sending your kids is viewed as strange and saying "we're homeschoolers" is kinda the only way to get people off your back about it. We're unschoolers, always have been....but I know a lot of people didn't see it as "official" til DD turned 5.
