I believe she meant child care, not kindergarten.

Kindergarten here usually starts at age 5, but is mandatory at age 6.

Child care begins as early as birth, here. I have had many children start at 2-3 days old. Maternity leave is very uncommon down here. Most jobs cut hours to 30 or so to keep from providing benefits.
