    In the whole wizarding world? Or just the Britain, where there's canonically only one school for witches and wizards?

    Day schools for magic specifically, or are you asking if there's an equivalent of Wizarding Kindergarten or elementary school where kids learn how to read and do math and that sort of thing before going off to learn witchcraft? Commented Jan 24, 2021 at 19:11

Most witches and wizards are homeschooled by parents, and only a select few families send their kids off to Hogwarts, or any of the other Wizarding Schools. I recommend you look at this Pottermore article, it's written by Rowling herself.

    If the article is relevant you should edit in some relevant quotes in case the link goes down.
