There's not the youngest child in the whole domain of our existence over which the state, which is sovereign over all, does not cry "Mine!" PBS is all a-flutter over the possibilities, titling their piece "The Case for starting sex education in kindergarten":

Welcome to “Spring Fever” week in primary schools across the Netherlands, the week of focused sex ed classes… for 4-year olds.

Of course, it’s not just for 4-year-olds. Eight-year-olds learn about self-image and gender stereotypes. 11-year-olds discuss sexual orientation and contraceptive options. But in the Netherlands, the approach, known as “comprehensive sex education,” starts as early as age 4.
