No, it is not mandatory. Kindergarten isn't even mandatory in many states. However, preschool can really help prepare a child for learning by focusing on skills like sharing and taking turns. In addition to the academic material (writing skills, etc.), children get to focus and work on their attention span, following rules, and socializing with other kids.

It prepares children to excel in kindergarten.

No, preschool can be a good way to help get kids ready for school but it is usually not required.

No but I do think that it gives children a head start in their learning.
