An article from MSN discusses a study that found that inner-city youths that attended preschool were more successful as adults:

I think it's so important to give kids a great solid base from which they can grow.

I think there is something to be said for staying at home before you reach school age. That time with parents is so good for children. That being said...if the home environment is not a very good one then I can definitely see how this works. Preschool is good and I teacher 18mos-3.5year olds but it is definitley not for every child. For a child who does not have many chances of enrichment at home these programs are so good b/c they are giving them many more opportunities.
