Re: School for an 18 month old?

They actually do learning stuff with them for most of those 4 hours.

My question is, isn't this too young to start formal school?
It sounds like a preschool type program, but at that age it has got to be mostly free play, which is learning. It's probably fun for the kids, and good for the moms to have a break if they want one. Also, I am SURE they do not attempt for them to sit still for 4 hours, or even more than 4 minutes! Even in actual preschool for 3-4 year olds, kids do not sit still for very long.
