Lisa Marie Presley is ''reluctant'' to send her children to nursery.

The 44-year-old singer - the daughter of the late Elvis Presley - has three-year-old twin daughters, Harper and Finley, with husband MICHAEL LOCKWOOD, but she isn't ready to enrol them into the education system yet because she thinks they are too young to go.

Instead, Lisa - who now resides in the UK after quitting America - wants to keep them at home and spend as much time with them as possible while they are at such a wonderful age.

Lisa - who also has a 23-year-old daughter Danielle and son Benjamin, 19, from a previous relationship - said in an interview with UK station BBC Radio 2: ''I'm reluctant to send them to school. I don't want to shove them off to school so early. I'll wait till they're five or six, as that's the age they start in the States. They start really early here and I'm stunned when I see the age range. I understand working parents need to do it but I don't want to lose them that quick. I'll go crazy when they all go to school as I won't know what to do!''

While Lisa thinks kids are entered into the education system at too early an age in the UK, she loves living in Britain because the people are so much friendlier than in California, where she used to reside.

She said: ''In California they people are so self-absorbed. I lived in the same neighbourhood for 17 years and I don't think I met a neighbour. When I moved here I was getting notes and flowers and people reaching out to me and I just thought it was incredible. There's a quality of life over here that I needed and I just found it very refreshing.

''Some of the press snoop around the area, but the locals are pretty protective of me, which I really found charming as I'd never experienced that before.''
