Hey I am a kinder garden teacher from Israel

I'd like to know about the age difference in usa.

Here a 1 aged group for pre school kindergarden would meen: from september to december including, will be 5th birthday and from january to next september 6th birth day.

By the way, maximum in class would be 35 kids with 2 adults (teacher and a professional helper)

Is it the same in the usa?
