I would use "is". For using "was", it would be "Would you have sent your kid to kindergarten when he was three years old?"
Student or Learner
Would you send your kid to kindergarden when he is 3 years old?
Do we use is or was in sentence above?
We more often spell it "kindergarten" (as MikeNewYork has it), but pronounce it kindergarden.
You might try "if".
Would you send your kid to kindergarten if he was 3 years old?
I know we're supposed to spell out numbers under 10. But in this case, it looks better when written about a child and read by parents and teachers in a parental context.
BTW, a 3-year-old would not qualify to be in kindergarten in the U.S. The normal age would be 4-5. A 3-year-old might be in preschool.
