I also think it varies widely based on the kid! I didn't do anything formal with Ben until 3.5. By then, he was ready for 30-60 minutes each morning. I'm letting Daniel lead the way this Fall. He says he's ready to do school, but he's more antsy than Ben was, so how much we do really depends on him. Personally, I don't think anything should be required of any child until age 5-6. If they want to sit and do worksheet after worksheet at 3, that's fine. Let 'em! If not, don't. Ben was the worksheet type. I don't think Daniel will be. He learns more by doing and seeing.
